The only thing I didn't like about this book is that some of the stories had a little much of quoting from the bible. I use to have a friend that quoted bible verses to me all the time, and she did it in such a way that it felt like she was trying to shame me about something, so I guess that is why that kind of talk turns me off. But overall, I found these stories to be hopeful and of great comfort.
This book is a collection of true stories from hospice nurses, sharing many of their most special patients last days. I read the first book, Glimpses of Heaven, about 4 years ago, after my dad had passed away, and it gave me a small measure of comfort. This time, with the 2nd book, I read it more for myself, as I have terminal breast cancer and I am getting ready to start hospice myself.The stories range in patients from just 2 weeks old, to 96 years old; many from cancer, but also other chronic and terminal diseases as well. The stories of the children were the hardest to read, but at the same time, they were the most inspirational; after all, if a small child can face death without fear, I should be able to also! The children always seem to be one the ones with the purest hearts and the least fear.
