Front Cover
Ave Maria Press, Jan 1, 1999 - Religion - 158 pages
Walking a companion home is an old-fashioned custom, often lost in our modern era. But there was a time when walking someone home was a way of offering protection and guidance. Joyce Hutchison and Joyce Rupp capture the spirit of that personal companionship for those who accompany the dying on their final journey. Whether family members, friends, chaplains, or health care workers, caregivers will find here much inspiration and support for their ministry.
