Faced with questions concerning the death of a close friend or relative, one may have trouble discerning where to turn. Sometimes emotions take over making it difficult to reach out to the right people for answers. Author Jo Myers writes to soothe the confusion and turmoil that often accompanies the loss of someone close to us with her own brand of practical knowledge and humor. Granted, it may be difficult to see the lighter side of heavy issues like writing a eulogy, funeral preparation and cremation, but Myers makes a gallant attempt at removing the unpleasantness surrounding such issues with clarity and wit.

Jo shares practical stories surrounding the death and dying of family and friends which are eye-opening. She offers a wisely chosen title for each letter of the alphabet which allows you to jump around the book and read the topics of most interest to you. Helpful tips written by therapists, funeral directors, physicians, etc. are highlighted throughout.

This is excellent material to pore over before one is in the position of making crucial decisions concerning the death of a loved one; the material will be easier to digest and appreciated while one is somewhat removed from what is usually a highly-charged, emotional event. If you are facing the loss of our Greatest Generation, and/or want to be thoughtful of your loved ones by planning ahead for your end of life, I highly recommend this book. I\’ve never seen anything like it.
