A book for anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to face the unknown.”-Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather’s Blessings”Companions for the Passage provides a unique look at the ways people adapt to loss. These are powerful stories for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one.”—J. Donald Schumacher, President and CEO, National Hospice and Palliative Care OrganizationCompanions for the Passage, from the author of the acclaimed Water Music, is an unforgettable book on a rarely visited subject: the personal stories of those who have witnessed the death of a loved one. Similar to works of Studs Terkel, author Marjorie Ryerson’s interviews capture the human condition through their wide variety of experiences and voices.Some of the interviewees are religious, some not; some encouraged their loved ones to accept death, others to fight it to the end. There are stories of heroic nurses and of indifferent hospital bureaucracies, of deaths that came too soon, and those that came at the end of a long, rich life. Possessing an affirmative quality that is anything but sentimental, ultimately these stories celebrate the experience of being present at the death of a loved one.
