A quick reminder: if you, a friend, or loved one are facing a poor prognosis or terminal illness, remember a slim volume that is written in faithfulness to the Church's teachings and has received high marks from a few folk like Mark Shea, Joseph Pearce, Fr. Dwight Longenecker, and Amy Welborn. Namely, A Little Guide for Your Last Days.
It is comforting, at times humorous, always as truthful as the author can make it, facing, as he is, a struggle with cancer himself.
