Description : From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand comes a gorgeous, heart-wrenching novel of love and loss, which ALA Booklist called "both shatteringly painful and bright with life and hope" in a starred review. Since her brother, Tyler, committed suicide, Lex has been trying to keep her grief locked away, and to forget about what happened that night. But as she starts putting her life, her family, and her friendships back together, Lex is haunted by a secret she hasn't told anyone—a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything. In the tradition of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why, Gayle Forman's If I Stay, and Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a thoughtful and deeply affecting novel that will change the way you look at life and death.

Description : "Goodbye" is not just a word; it is a journey. It is said that life throws us curves when we least expect it. I suppose that's true. Sometimes those curves can be wonderful but sometimes they are devastating. One thing I have learned is that it is better not to know what the future holds. If we knew the things we were going to have to endure in life, most of us would shrink within the confines of our homes or even our own souls. Not knowing what tomorrow holds frees us to live completely for today. It gives us license to embrace the world around us because tomorrow it may all be gone. When we allow ourselves to live with open arms, we create opportunities to receive more than we can ever dream. Yes, there will be pain, but in time the pain fades and leaves beautiful memories of amazing experiences we didn't recognize as we were actually living them. Annette and I initially appeared to be the most unlikely pair, but we became inseparable. When cancer crashed into our world, we faced it together. Although her body eventually gave in to the disease, her spirit conquered it completely. Cancer did not win, she won! Ours was a beautiful journey that only made our goodbye that much more exquisite. It was painfully wonderful to have walked such a journey with such an amazing woman. I would have never dreamed that saying "goodbye" could be one of life's greatest and richest blessings, but we lived it first-hand. Here is our story... Walking into Annette's house, my eyes were immediately drawn to the hospital bed in the middle of the living room where she had spent the last two months of her life. She looked so beautiful, so peaceful - so dead. It was the moment I had feared; the one I had dreamed about but somehow hoped I would never have to face. Yet here I was, standing with my husband's arms around me, staring into the lifeless face of the dearest friend I had ever had. Michael has a complete aversion to dead bodies, but he had such love and respect for Annette that he set his discomfort aside in order to see her one last time. He loved her for the way in which she had treated me for so many years and how the pure, divine love she gave to me had made me a better person. She loved him because she saw how completely he loved and cared for me above all else. There were so many memories flooding my mind as I looked at her. When Michael left the room, I just kept staring at her and thinking, "What am I supposed to do now? How did such a beautiful journey lead to this? How am I supposed to say goodbye?"

Description : This final volume of Death and Bereavement Around the World reflects on some major themes: death and after-life, religion and spirituality, rites and rituals, secularist approaches, cultural variations, suicide, and other issues. The first few chapters describe progress in end-of-life care, including some new tools to evaluate hospice care (chapter 1); what children know, when they know it, and how parents can respond to questions, with some guidelines for support by schools (chapter 2); the importance of ritual (chapter 3); and gender differences in death customs around the world (chapter 4). The transcript of a 1997 interview of John (Jack) Morgan by Pittu Laungani is presented as chapter 5. The following chapters discuss death systems and suicide (chapter 6); HIV/AIDS, including the role of cultural and economic factors in the spread of the disease (chapter 7); and grief and bereavement in the developing world, taking the AIDS pandemic as a specific challenge (chapter 8). Chapter 9 covers issues related to dying and death in Romania. In chapter 10 the focus is on the various functions and uses of names in a cross-cultural context. Roadside memorials as a pivotal healing strategy are the topic of chapter 11. Chapters 12 and 13 focus on spiritual experience with loss. The final chapter presents some conclusions, and in the Epilogue, Mary Ann Morgan honors the life, career, dying, death, and achievements of John (Jack) Morgan. The "Final Word" includes the words of Pittu Laungani, from a book published just weeks before his death in February 2007. Intended Audience: This work is for anyone interested in or working in death and bereavement issues, particularly academics, educators, librarians, chaplains, clergy, funeral service directors, hospice care providers and volunteers, palliative care providers, nurses, immigration officers, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, and counselors, especially bereavement counselors.

Description : Eighty-four years old and terminally ill with cancer, psychiatrist Pat Ferguson wants nothing more than for her life, which no longer brings her joy, to be over. But when her ailing body refuses to let go, she asks her son Sean to do the unthinkable: to help her to die. Before We Say Goodbye is Sean Davison's personal account of the months he spent with his mother before her death. Written as a diary, it candidly recounts Davison's emotional struggle during that time, the tension between members of their family and his ultimate decision to grant his mother's last request and end her suffering. This touching, honest and thought-provoking memoir will resonate not only with countless families who have found themselves in a similar position, but with all of us who may one day have to face that choice: a choice that, for Sean Davison, would come to have life-changing consequences.
