I found "When Autumn Comes" to be very inspiring as well as comforting reading at the time my father was passing on. I think more than anything it helped me to recognize my own agenda vs. my father's real needs and state of mind. This book helped me to not be so afraid of death and instead to support my father and actually encourage him in this process by my mindful presence. I will never forget this rich experience of being at his side until the moment when he took his final breath. It was an honor, a joy and a privilege and I am so grateful to have had this guidebook for support to enhance my spiritual understanding of the death process.

When Autumn Comes provides valuable insight into the profoundly compassionate work of a hospice volunteer. Bennett's heartfelt stories of companionship with the dying will touch and inspire all who open their hearts to her message. A well-written and moving book.

The stories Ms. Bennett tells in When Autumn Comes have the power to penetrate deeply into relationship spaces most of us are unwilling to go without a guide. She has learned the sacred art of listening, and challenges me to ask this burning question everywhere I go these days, "How can I help?"

When Autumn Comes, by Mary Jo Bennett is amazing! An invaluable resource and guide, it deals with some of the most profound and difficult issues surrounding death, in readily accessible language. Not only is this book a must-read for those who are directly or indirectly involved in the care and support of the dying, it is also appropriate for those of us whose loved ones will soon be in that life stage, and for all spiritually-minded people who want to live their lives mindful of their own mortality.

When Autumn Comes is a glimpse into both the range and depth of experience possible when attending the dying, as a loved one or as a hospice volunteer. Ms. Bennett's naked accounts of the tender beauty of attending life and death, as well as the inherent pain, are illuminating and inspiring. All new hospice volunteers, and most of us facing the death of a loved, one would benefit from the opportunity of seeing death through the eyes of one with the heart and integrity of Ms Bennett.
