Trudy Harris worked as a hospice nurse for over 20 years. Each chapter of this book is a story about an individual that either she or one of her colleagues cared for in hospice. The stories are inspirational and filled with hope.

I also enjoyed Trudy's first book "Glimpses of Heaven."

Trudy has spent her life caring for patients near the end of their lives. She has a great deal of wisdom to share. She also seems like an angel on earth to the patients and families that she serves.

She is someone I

Grab a box of Kleenex, because you're going to need it when you read More Glimpses of Heaven: Inspiring True Stories of Hope and Peace at the End of Life's Journey. Written by hospice nurse Trudy Harris, this book is full of brief stories about the end of life.

The stories are all poignant: the child with leukemia who keeps hanging on until he feels sure his mom can handle life without him, the many folks who see deceased friends and relatives - even Jesus - coming to "visit" shortly before they

Jesus says "I am with you always" and that includes our journey into death. A very comforting read.

Trudy Harris in her new book, "More Glimpses Of Heaven" Book Two in her Glimpses Of Heaven series published by Revell gives us more stories of in the final days and moments of the terminally ill and dying.

Trudy Harris was a hospice nurse for many years before she became president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. With all these years of experience she has many stories to tell and associates who also have stories that give us a glimpse of those who are dying see just before they are ushered i

This book was a very simple read. It was different accounts of what happens to patients, as a hospice nurse, while they are crossing from this life into Heaven. This book was so special to me as I began to see a pattern in how we cross over and who is there to help us ease into the thought of this. It was different with children then it was adults, none the less ALL people were given comfort in who the Lord sent over to help them cross over. I have never really looked at death as "peaceful or be ...more

More Glimpses of Heaven by Trudy Harris is a poignant and inspirational book. Harris has collected stories from several hospice workers, as well as some writings of her own, of their experiences with patients who had unusual deaths. Each story is unique and beautiful in its own way. From a young boy dying from leukemia who is determined that his mother will be cared for after he's gone to a elderly soldier preparing to meet his Captain, there is a message of hope in every story of death.

More Glimpses of Heaven is Trudy Harris's second book on death and dying. As a hospice nurse, she and other hospice nurses share touching, peaceful stories of people as they are dying and/or die. The experiences she shares are varied, interesting and touching. I was most struck by the peace that accompanies acceptance of one's dying state.

One reader said, "Hope, love, comfort, and peace fill each page." I agree.

This is a great resource for anyone who works with dying people as it will help her

I read Ms. Harris' first book & thought it was wonderful, but this second book is even better. In this book, she invites other hospice nurses to share some of their experiences. It gives a slightly different flavor to this book.

She explains there is a nurse, a volunteer, a chaplain, a social worker & a medical director all involved in the patient's day-to-day life. My mother has an aide that comes in 3 times a week to shower her & monitor her wounds (bed sores, etc.). Besides the man

A good book written by a hospice nurse. Relating stories of her and other hospice nurses and the experiences of their patients at the time of death. Very uplifting. I liked reading about the absence of fear when it was time to move on to heaven. The peacefulness with which the patients experienced during their last moments. I truly believe that when it is time to cross over, we are never alone. The stories tell of angels, loved ones and even Jesus Christ himself who appear at the time of death, ...more

Trudy Harris is a pretty amazing person to do what she does. Her stories are truly inspiring; however, it makes me wonder about the passing of those who were not so blessed as to have the faith and family around that the people that she writes about did.
Christine Pouliot-basnar
As my review for Trudy's first book, this is a wonderful read for ANY religion. It's moving stories of patients at the end of life is goof for any age reader!!! This is a must read for ALL hospice volunteers!!!
Linda
I've heard about hospice but never knew anyone who used them. So for that the book was interesting. It must take a lot of dedicated people to do that type of work.
Joan Parker
