“Karen Bell has written a truly comprehensive guide for those facing the end of life. If she has missed any important question that needs to be asked, I can't think of one. Living at the End of Life is well organized so the reader can find any topic quickly.

Everyone dealing with a terminal disease needs this book.”--Hank Dunn, author of Hard Choices for Loving People
