Since earliest civilization man has prayed to a Higher Power for healing. When It's Time explores terminally ill patients' struggles with life, death, and spirituality. Research confirms that prayer does make a difference; healing, physical remission, peace of mind, and reconciliation with a Higher Power happen through prayer. There appears to be a paradox. Many believe healing can only be of a physical nature, when, in fact, healing exhibits itself in different perspectives. This is a compilation of true stories about patients living with a terminal illness who have found their healing by discovering a pathway to faith in a Higher Power, God.

I am administrator of home for the elderly for 24 years. We provide care for many terminally ill, mostly Alzheimer's / dementia residents. Every one of them is unique - their life journey, their family, their habits, their inner spiritual world, and even their death. And I can really appreciate the important job of hospice team which takes over when doctor's prognosis for resident is only six month to live, also profound role of hospice chaplain, spiritual counselor like Dr. Curtis Smith. Reading his "When It's Time" I see again my residents who are gone, some years ago, and some recently. Brave, resilient, hard working people. Their generation went trough Great Depression and Word War II, raging 50s, 60s and 70s, made incredible contribution to growth and prosperity of this country. They lived long, good lives, never easy ones, at end battling cruel illnesses. Many of them only in death finally have found rest for their tired bodies and mind, with no more worries, no more pain and suffering. Hospice chaplain has sacred mission of spiritual assistance for the dying and their families, to find meaning and give comfort, to deal with emptiness, loneliness and sorrows, to accept death as event that is as natural as the birth. For believers there is nothing more comforting than feeling of connection to Higher Power in their transition to better World. Dr. Smith helps them to reestablish lost connections or reinforce the existing ones. Thank you, Dr. Smith for a terrific work, excellent book, and wish you many more years of satisfying and productive life! Vic McKenzie firstname.lastname@example.org
