Wise, nurturing, faith-based reflections for caregivers of dying loved ones At some point in our lives most of us will become caregivers. It is a vocation that can last for a few weeks of recovery time or for a long period of chronic illness or disability, and it will involve us intimately in others' preparation for death.This collection of poignant reflections by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is for family members and friends who are doing the life-changing work of accompanying someone on the final stretch of his or her journey. In quiet counterpoint to our hurried lives, A Long Letting Go invites caregivers to slow down for reflection and prayer as they prepare to say good-bye to a beloved friend or family member.Based on McEntyre's professional and personal experience with the dying, these gentle meditations offer comfort, direction, hope, respite, and consolation to caregivers during a difficult season of their own lives.
