"Dying is only one thing to be sad over. Living unhappily is something else."

– Morrie Schwartz

When it comes to dying, and even living for that matter, there is a lot to know. You can look for it yourself, but here at Dying to Understand, we aim to have everything you might need, saving you time, energy and maybe even money, so that you can do something that is more enjoyable.

Our list of resources is growing and as with all things of value, we expect it will mature over time.

This site is designed specifically for you, whether you are facing death or whether you have a loved one who is. So please let us know your thoughts and provide any feedback via our contact page.
