What happens when you die?

You can discuss almost anything these days, at least on the internet. It’s ironic that one of the only topics that’s still considered taboo is one we will all face eventually: death and dying. In our latest Instaread, a hospice nurse talks about helping people in their final moments, offering an intimate perspective on loss and the human experience.

A colleague told Hadley that most patients see deceased loved ones before they go, and Glenda was no exception. In Glenda’s eyes, at least, Hadley, Glenda’s daughter, and Glenda’s late sister were all by her bedside when she died.
