How do you speak to a loved one who is nearing death? What do you say when a terminally ill patient or family member asks “Why?” How do you plan for your own version of “A Good End?” Rabbis, chaplains, a bereavement counselor, a social worker, and a teenager share their stories and they lessons they’ve learned.
