A practical and comprehensive guide for dealing with end-of-life events. Delicate decisions - both big and small - are made in the days, weeks, and months before and after a loved one's death. This book is an excellent resource for managing this tumultuous time.

Writing from a Catholic perspective, the authors offer advice in a friendly heart-to-heart manner with factual material in easy-to-read short passages for grieving readers. The book explains how and why grief harms functional decision-making; offers suggestions on how to make the best decisions; and concrete examples of working through the steps involved in pre-planning and wrapping up an estate.

Now What? fills an untapped niche in bereavement support and delivers faith-filled, encouraging, and supportive wisdom.
