Graceful Endings:
Navigating the Journey of Loss and Grief
Linda Kavelin-Popov's latest book delves deeply into the journey confronting both the dying and those of us who are losing them. Graceful Endings reveals what helps – and what doesn't help – as we make our way through this fragile and powerful experience. She offers practical wisdom for challenges such as how to personalize a funeral, when to bring in help, tips on care for the caregiver, signs that the individual is about to die, and above all how to be the best companion possible throughout the process. See Table of Contents (PDF).

"Linda Kavelin-Popov's other books teach us how to live. Graceful Endings teaches us how to die, with grace and even joy. It is a powerful and helpful guide for caregivers, family and friends on what to say and do, to companion the dying."
Grania Litwin, Canadian journalist
