We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, yet very few of us have really come to terms with this fact. This inspiring book helps us to live a happy and meaningful life, to prepare for death and to help others who are dying. In this way, instead of something to be feared or denied, death can become a positive experience.
