Trudy Harris began her career with Hospice in 1981, eventually becoming the president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. This collection of more than forty true stories of Harris's patients offers readers an incredible glimpse at what lies beyond and what the living can learn from the dying.

Her patients have described to her visions of angels and loved ones who have gone on before, the sounds of ethereal music, colors that did not exist on earth. She has been with hundreds of patients as they took their last breaths and knows the kinds of questions that both the dying and the loved ones they are leaving behind ask.

• What do you say to a loved one who is dying?
• What happens when we die?
• How can you make a dying friend feel safe?
• Does a dying person really see angels, hear music, or see friends and family members who have already died?
Tender, heartbreaking, and eye-opening, Glimpses of Heaven offers a window into the world beyond and life after death.

From a 5-star rating (more than 100!): “Glimpses of Heaven is a collection of Trudy's experiences, each a short story, so it is easy to pick up and put down. Ok, it is NOT-at-all easy to put down! You won't be able. This book made me giggle, laugh, sigh, smile and sob until my pillow was wet. It is a wonderful book, full of inspiration and hope. It will make you recall the death of dear loved ones and think about your own mortality with greater comfort, peace and understanding.



Trudy has a wonderful gift of expression so that you are right in that room, reliving that experience. You feel the emotions: sadness, comfort, grief, bonding and relief - mixed in with her great sense of humor and a new understanding of what death is like. It is eye-opening and a great read. I highly recommend this book.
