May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

Final Gifts is a very interesting book that helps caregivers understand what seems like strange behavior in those close to death. David Kessler has written something similar recently called Visions, Trips and Crowded Rooms. Very enlightening.
