Abstract
Discusses coming to terms with the disease itself; managing pain; planning funerals; making peace with loved ones; deciding about terminal care; and learning what the final experience of death is like. Although the author argues the pros and cons of euthanasia and belief in an afterlife, her obvious bias in favour of both may be off-putting to some readers.

Abstract
"An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss--with a new preface and epilogue loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that transforms it. A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life--one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings." - Publisher
