Dorothy Womack

My name is Dorothy Womack. I was the sole caregiver to my mother 24/7 for a period of almost 4 years, up until she died in my home. She lived with us for 14 years prior to that time, and I had the occasion to watch her progressive decline until the very end. My mother endured great hardship and showed enormous bravery and tenacity in the face of it all.

My greatest goal is to reach those who are caring for their own loved ones with the TRUTH, informing them of what to expect during the END STAGES and to help them transform their GUILT before it becomes destructive to their own well-being. I am also a strong believer that we all have a SPIRIT, and that it truly survives the disintegration of the BODY. I also believe in the Hereafter and my own mother had experiences with speaking to angels and other departed ones before she died herself.

I hope to be of some encouragement and enlightenment to those of you who really do have an interest in knowing what is coming before it gets there to knock you over the head!! SMOOCHES HUGS HUGS....Dorothy
