What Do I Say? provides guidance to family members, friends, caregivers, and even those more experienced— clergy, pastoral ministers, hospice workers, and medical personnel—in understanding the best ways to talk and pray with the dying. In her work as a pastoral minister with the terminally ill, Banta gained the insight and experience to help her craft this accessible guide.
What Do I Say? covers practical matters and spiritual and emotional topics, always mindful of the fact that many people in their final days are not able to express what they are going through. It touches on wills, DNR orders, funeral planning, and other topics, and gives suggestions for what to do if someone is noncommunicative or unconscious, and includes prayers to say when family and friends visit with their loved one.
