This guide is intended to present areas of concern related to death and dying and thus invite further study leading to informed decision-making. The information in this book is not intended to substitute for the advice of trained specialists from many fields, most notably health care, financial, pastoral or legal professionals. Readers should consult their physicians and medical practitioners, financial advisors and accountants, pastors and attorneys for appropriate, personalized, specific advice.
All illustrations show the diversity of nature and its cycle of nature—planting, growing, producing, reaping and death.
