"Crossing the Creek" is not only a practical guide to understanding the dying process, it's a sincere and caring look into the spiritual side of dying too. Holmes, as a registered hospice nurse, shows a tender compassion towards all aspects of a dying person's journey to the "other side."

As he covers the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects associated with this (to most people) fearful aspect of life, he makes it clear upfront that not everyone will agree with his perception of the dying process. His gentle understanding of human nature has him suggesting that, if uncomfortable with any part of his text, the reader must seek solace elsewhere.

I found this text highly informative, and appreicated the author's sensitivity to the squeamishness of readers such as myself. He didn't pull punches about the dying process, but he did convey such a sense of acceptance, faith and compassion that this book was a great comfort. ( )
