Be compassionately present.
Be with each moment.
Have confidence in the dying process.
Trust in the unfolding.
Don't lose your sense of humor.
Expect nothing and be ready for anything.
Let go of your own fears.
Follow the lead of the dying.
Practice sacred listening.
Don't talk about the afterlife unless you are asked.
Most of all: be love; send love.
