Books--Final Gifts by Maggie Callanan & Patricia Kelley

Borrowed from Hospice and here are some quotes that resonated with me:
"Coping with a terminal illness is more than hard work--it's all consuming and creeps into every corner of your life."
"It's like having an unwanted and uninvited stranger in your midst, who seems to take up more and more space."
"The weight of another's denial adds to the patient's burden, often causing a dying person to withdraw from those who are denying, increasing his sense of isolation."
"A dying person's depression grows out of grief. Dying people grieve as anyone does for something that is lost. But their grief has two parts; they're mourning what's lost already to illness--health, family, role, job, independence--but also for what will be lost when they die--personal relationships, life itself and the future."

And a quote at the end of the book:

"Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
