Mary Yes! Donald Hall wrote two wonderful books of essays about aging and facing death: "Essays After 80" and "A Carnival of Losses: Notes Nearing Ninety." Another Donald, Don Murray, wrote a newspaper column about aging and some of that is reflected in his memoir "My Twice-Lived Life."
Susan Fiction by Walter Mosley: The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is a great read about a 91-year-old.
Richard Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well by Billy Graham - I have it to read - it is from a Christian perspective.
Also I bought Miracles of Life by J G Ballard based on a book review on TV again unread but I think it talks about reflections of age and death in the family.
The first book however I am going to read was recommended by you, thank you
