    Every milestone in life has a story. But there is one milestone story we seldom tell—the story of our experience of being present for the death of a loved one. Stay With Me Awhile is a compilation of vigil stories from across cultures, religions, political views and socio-economic circumstances that were collected over a seven-year period. Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More
