Now On Now on Page Six. Lead with your heart -- keep your love flowing with the dying person and others as well -- if possible. Nothing is more important than loving each other. Do your best and then some. Make it a priority to demonstrate your love for the person who is dying.
The fact that your loved one is dying can be overwhelming and scary.
Do your best not to let that get in the way of keeping your love alive as you see them off on their journey into the unknown territory of death. Love them up, down and sideways, but don't make a big deal about it -- just let your love flow and watch for little things that you can do to be of service to them.

If you enter your loved one's room and say something like, "Your color looks good today," when you both know he or she is dying, your real communication says, "I can't handle this and need to pretend it isn't happening. Be authentic. Be you. It's okay to let them see your fear and distress, but don't let that overshadow your love. Express your gratitude to them for the ways they enriched your life, share happy memories and yes, do say goodbye -- but do it tenderly. Don't be afraid to touch the dying.
Nothing communicates our love more than holding hands and stroking our loved one's hair. Tailor your efforts according to the time available. Respect the fact that time can be very short from hearing the prognosis to the actual time of death. One of my personal pet peeves is when people are inconvenienced by the news, as though their loved one should have checked on their availability rather than having the audacity to sound the red alert at an inopportune moment.

Respect the authority of the dying to make his or her own decisions. The person who is dying is the boss. If they are conscious enough to be making their own decisions -- don't bully them into doing things your way. Just as sure as you are that your way is right for you, know that their way is right for them no matter how different it is from your own. If someone holding a healthcare proxy is in charge, his or her authority is to be equally respected. Ideally, each of us gets our ducks in a row before our dying time. In reality, most do not.
