Did you ever ride in a car with a person who held his or her breath when passing a cemetery? That's just one manifestation of the American difficulty in thinking or talking about death.
Fred Grewe was afraid of death himself, but he wanted to get over it.
So he became a hospice chaplain, and helped more than a thousand people come to terms with their deaths.
Grewe tells stories of several of his clients in his book What the Dying Have Taught Me About Living.
He visits the studio to share the stories.
