Is anyone here familiar with Deanna Edwards? She is an LDS singer/composer who has used music in her work to help those who are dying and those stuggling with grief after the death of a loved one. Her book and music were very helpful when my sister and father died within a short time of each other.
I bring this up because I know that at one time she worked very closely with the Franciscans and also appeared on “Christopher Closeup” where she sang “Take My Hand”.
Anyway my mother is now terminally ill and I sit with her two days each week and have found Sis. Edwards work comforting. I also admire everyone who works with her for their willingness to cooperate in this worthy endeavor despite their religious differences.
She also wrote a song called “Teach Me to Die”. I believe the Catholic Church’s beloved Pope John Paul II was definitely a great teacher of how to face death with faith and dignity.
