Support for a dying person

Support for a dying person requires a very special relationship of trust and confidence, and means being able to feel for his/her situation. The meeting may take the form of a conversation characterized by the truth or of a silent, wordless presence. Love does not need words to reach a dying person. A companion seeking to convey such love will intuitively feel what the dying person needs. Accompanying a dying person also means providing support for the relatives.
