Christopher Kerr

Death Is But a Dream

In his book Death Is But a Dream: Finding Hope and Meaning at Life’s End””, hospice doctor Christopher Kerr offers a glimpse into what happens at the end of life. “What the dying fear most is not death but the loss of a life they can recognize as their own. Ultimately, to die well is to humanize dying from an irredeemably grim reality to an experience which may also be rich in meaning and love.”
