Barbara Karnes is a wise and compassionate Registered Nurse who has been present for hundreds of deaths. Today she writes and teaches families in non-medical language for families how to experience the death of a loved one, because with knowledge comes understanding, and understanding reduces fear.
In part two of my interview with veteran hospice nurse Barbara Karnes, we dig deeper into what’s in her helpful kit for families of the dying, how it helps, and even ask if Grandma should be allowed to spark one up and get stoned in her dying days! I think you’ll be surprised at Barbara’s answer.
Jose heard the soft call of the night bird, mournful and low. “It is a sign.” Jose thought, so he was not afraid when he opened the door.
Lá fora, José ouviu p canto suave do pássaro da noite, triste e baixa. “É um sinal.” José pensou, e ainda assim ele não estava com medo quando abriu a porta.
