More true stories of the tender beauty of life's end

There is more to death than simply ceasing to live. In Glimpses of Heaven, retired hospice nurse Trudy Harris offered an intimate look at the final days and moments of terminally ill and dying people. Now she shares more of her stories and also stories from other medical and hospice professionals, allowing the veil to be drawn back on God's handiwork, while we are both living and dying.

If you have lost a loved one, are facing a terminal illness, or are simply curious about what happens when we pass from life to death, More Glimpses of Heaven offers you an even deeper insight into God's plan for our lives every day.

Trudy Harris, RN, is the author of Glimpses of Heaven, a former hospice nurse, and former president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. Since retirement, Harris remains active in connecting the needs of terminally ill and dying people in her community with the hospice program she knows can best meet their needs.

This is both a fascinating and a touching book. As a nurse, I have a tremendous respect and appreciation for the incredible care that so many hospice organizations provide. Over the past few decades they have helped dying patients and their families face their final days with dignity and grace. Trudy Harris has allowed us to be the proverbial "fly on the wall" of the last days and moments of individuals ranging in age from children to ninety-plus-year-olds. While I don't necessarily agree with all the theology and beliefs exhibited by the patients and caregivers within the book, I recognize that only God knows the spiritual condition of a person's heart in their last moments. And for those who are believers, the peace and assurance they experience as they approach their transition to heaven is awe-inspiring, and it is a privilege to watch as a soul becomes "absent from the body and at home with the Lord." (2 Corinthians 5:8) This book will minister to many.
