We Know How This Ends: Living While Dying

We Know How This Ends

By Bruce Kramer, with Cathy Wurzer

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS and Lou Gehrig’s Disease) was not in the life plan of Bruce Kramer.

But the former dean of the College of Education, Leadership and Counseling at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, Minn., chose to transform a crushing diagnosis, in 2010, into a reflection on how life can be lived, even in the midst of devastating grief.

Bruce, also a CaringBridge author, collaborated with Cathy Wurzer, an award-winning broadcast journalist with Minnesota Public Radio on “We Know How This Ends.”

The book is an equally dignified, courageous, and even funny look at the ways in which loss can lead to healing. Bruce died in 2015, just as the book was published.

Cathy and Bruce’s wife, Ev, remain engaged in public conversations about wellbeing and caregiving.

It's hard to be the Grandparents on the other side of the State. You have to find ways to help and support.
