The process of dying has been likened to a journey. Some people will choose to journey alone, while others may prefer the companionship of a friend with whom they can share hopes and fears. The theme of the day will be ‘presence’ using the framework proposed by Nolan* in which different expressions of presence will be considered: evocative presence; accompanying presence; comforting presence and hopeful presence.
