When death approaches it is possible to resurrect relationships, revive past loves and achieve forgiveness.

One of the most devastating elements of the coronavirus pandemic has been the inability to personally care for loved ones who have become ill.

Time and again, grieving family members have recounted how more devastating their loved one’s death was because they were unable to hold their hand to provide a comforting, familiar presence in their final days and hours.

Some had to say your last goodbye through a mobile phone screen held by a healthcare worker. Others resorted to the use of walkie-talkies or to greet family members through the windows.

How can you overcome the overwhelming pain and guilt that comes when you think of a loved one dying alone?
