Want to know what it can really be like to help a loved one through the dying process Feb 18, 2007
I am the author of this book. I wrote it because I've been helping people through the dying process for 30 years now and it's not that awful dark place that we are afraid to talk about. It is a beautiful, spiritual birth into another dimension where our loved ones can finally heal. It's part of the circle of life. And, I'm telling stories that are completely true about how it can be if we start facing our and our loved ones truth. This is what is going on. Now how can I help to make this as smooth and comfortable as possible? These stories tell the reader how. And, these stories show us how it's really not in our hands. Spirit is guiding the whole process if we can get our egos out of the way and let it happen. And, woven into the process there is still humor and memories that will fill our hearts when we learn how to let go and let God.
This book will show the reader that the true nature of the dying process is spiritual!
Good reading ! Dec 25, 2006
The author handles a subject that is so hard to talk about, let alone write about. She takes us along when she visits loved ones, friends and patients before they die. She shares word for word the conversations of these people who in most cases wanted total honesty. Because of her writing, I was able to face the same situation without stiffling myself and my feelings. Anything my dying relative and anything I wanted to say -- is said thanks to her frank writing. A must read.
Very helpful book Nov 19, 2003
I got my copy of "Final Passage" and sat down and read it in one day. Barbara Whitfield was so right about it being full of "aha's". I used a whole box of kleenex that day; it was emotionally wrenching, but I couldn't put it down. I have loaned it to my step-daughter (my husband,her dad died of cancer in 2001). She is having a very difficult time reading it because of the emotions it brings up, so she is taking one chapter at a time with lots of time in between.
I went ahead and ordered another copy along with "Spiritual Awakenings" I just started reading it and haven't had time to read much, but I wanted to say Barbara's books are very helpful for understanding some of life's difficult issues.
Final Passage Dec 19, 2000
Below is a letter I sent to Barbara Whitfield after reading her book Final Passage. Please post this letter with her book information. Thank you very much.
My name is Shirley and I just finished reading your book Final Passage. I loved it! I heard your interview on a local radio show a few weeks ago and you were discussing your book and it sounded very interesting to me. I lost my mother a year and a half ago to cancer and have been a little lost and confused since then. I wish I would have educated myself on the dying process before my mother died. I'm sure it would have made things easier. I feel better after reading your book. I was with my mother when she passed and I've always wondered what it was like for her in those last few moments. I believe your book shed some light on that for me. I was glad I could be there for her when she passed but it was really hard to watch. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your book.
