This next year you’re going to have friends who die. How are you going to be their friend? How are you going to help them? How are you going to help them in their final moments? As they face the greatest crisis of their life what are you going to say? What do you say to somebody who is terminally ill? Unfortunately when many people hear that a friend is dying they avoid them because they don’t know what to say or do. That leaves the friend feeling rejected and abandoned and us feeling like failures. This is why this book is so important ... so the Great Commandment can be lived out in our lives and we can be the friends we want to be and the kind of friend that they need us to be.
