Although from a Zen rather than a Tibetan Buddhist perspective, might I suggest you look at The Five Invitations by Frank Ostaseski, one of the founders of the San Francisco Zen Hospice project. It contains some really core ideas about approaching death (and life).

Well, with dying it seems to be a lot about changing the mindset so even this zennie book will be of help for sure. Thank you! :)
