This book was produced as a companion to the Hospice Foundation of America's fourth annual national bereavement teleconference. Hospice Foundation of America is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing leadership in the development of hospice and its philosophy of care for terminally-ill people. Through education, research, and philanthroptc programs, The Hospice Foundation of America assists those who cope either personally or professionally with terminal illness and the process of death, grief and bereavement. In addition to the annual teleconference, the Foundation publishes Journeys, a monthly newsletter to help in bereavement; produces A Guide to Recalling and Telling Your Life Story, a tool to assist people in writing their autobiographies; and provides a number of free informational brochures on hospices, military service centers, and other organizations. The Foundation is developing an audiotape series entitled Clergy to Clergy to help clergy members learn more about grief and bereavement issues.
