End of Life Guideline Series: A Compilation of Barbara Karnes Booklets
Printed Compilation



The “End of Life Guideline Series” is a compilation of Barbara Karnes’ four books on the end of life. This series, dealing with death, is available in hard copy or ebook versions.

When you or someone you know has been told by a physician that they have a disease that may not be treatable, life changes instantly. At such a time people enter a phase of life for which they often have no preparation. No one tells us how to live with a life-threatening illness, what to expect when someone is dying, what to do to help, how to address our fear of death and dying and how to grieve.

The Series begins with the guidance “A Time To Live” offers to a person who has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness.
The “End of Life Guideline Series” progresses to “Gone From My Sight” (the ‘Little Blue Book’) which explains the stages of death, the dying process and the signs of approaching death that begin months before death from disease and guides the reader to the moment of death.

The Eleventh Hour” offers information, ideas and support for a caregiver or family member, people who are often alone as their loved one is dying, to care for a dying person in the hours to minutes before death and just after. 

The final section of this compilation, "My Friend, I Care," is an exploration of the normal grieving process; guidance on living with the loss of a loved one.

The goal of this series is to neutralize some of the fear that an unpredictable future may bring.  Knowledge of the dying process and its natural and normal unfolding can help create a meaningful and comforting experience as a loved one journeys from life. It is written in a simple, gentle voice. It is a short and valuable read. 

Following a death, we often have questions about the disease progression and concerned memories. The “End of Life Guideline Series” prepares its readers for the natural, normal process of dying and grief. You can find comfort in these books on end of life even years after the death of a loved one.

My mother was a guest at the beautiful Villa Marie Claire Hospice in NJ during her last days. I found a copy of Gone From My Sight and The Eleventh Hour in her room and read both during my vigil. They are both beautifully written and explain the dying process as something peaceful and natural - as it should be.

Recently I was honored to watch over a beautiful young woman due to an act of violence which ended up ending her beautiful 11 month old daughter as well. When the need was asked if "anyone could help sit" with her, I immediately said "YES" as I was there when she was born, we just buried her Mother due to health issues and I know in my heart this was the right thing to do. Not knowing anything about hospice or what to expect, the family told me what to ask for but I did not know what to LOOK for should I need to contact them. One of your books (blue) was sitting on the nightstand and I read it. Then I read it again.....I actually believe YOUR pamphlet was meant for me to read and GOD placed it there so I would feel some type of comfort. You must know - you have made a difference and I for one, thank you.

My story is similar to everyone else. My mom passed away on hospice care in my home at the age of 92, exactly where she wanted to be in her chair on the sun porch with the sun shining in after 3 months on hospice care. The hospice nurse gave me Gone from my Sight. Which i cant say enough about. It made us all very aware of what my mom was going through and also how to be comfortable with her whole journey. I have since passed it on to family and friends. Barbara is an angel sent to earth to help us all through this sad but inevitable time that each and everyone one of us will go through. Thank you Barbara you are truly an Angel!
