“I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
 
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
 
Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."
 
Gone where?
 
Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast, hull and spar as she was when she left my side.

 
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.
And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone," there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"”. -Henry Van Dyke

  • Provide emotional, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint.
  • Support in the weeks and days leading up to the death.

  • Planning for rituals and care of the body post-death.

  • Helping facilitate conversations between family and friends with the dying.

  • Planning legacy projects

  • Help planning for and attending death vigils and end of life concerns.

  • In-person vigiling.
