Enduring Love The Book
Enduring Love is a collection of over one hundred portraits of hospice patients with family and friends embracing love and life. Someone in all of the portraits has since died. Many photographs were taken on the last day of life, often moments before the last breath. These portraits have frozen time to preserve a visual memory of love and connection indefinitely.
Enduring Love also offers glimpses into hospice care, the truth of what the process of death and dying looks like, and thought provoking realities of how people live and love with dementia. Included are grand love stories, inspiring conversations with the dying, their advice for living, and the wisdom their illnesses have gifted them.
Enduring Love is an invitation to live and love fully while we are alive!
