In offering "Farewell, My Friend," Ms. Beatrice Bailey has created a fantastic, self-contained, unique resource for anyone's reading. Having experienced the loss of both my parents, I would say, "Read this book now...before you are faced with the cares and challenges of death and dying!" There's plenty enough humor to balance out the tears on such a serious subject..but it's basically a WORKBOOK. Read it today! Reference it tomorrow!
