True Stories of Life Before & After Death

by Joanne M. Clarkson Hospice RN

Death has been part of my life since I was a child. Miracles have been the balance, turning terror into mystery. I traveled a long way to find my calling as a Hospice Nurse. My years caring for the dying changed my way of thinking about body and spirit. These pages contain twenty-four stories of ghosts and music and a failed GPS system. Of UFOs and convicts. Of a fateful traffic accident and imaginary roses. Five chapters from my personal life frame nineteen examples of how final moments become extraordinary. In this book, small coincidences make a great difference. Single acts of unselfish love let us know we are not alone in our sorrow and wonder.
