Pema,

Yes I was looking at the Nam Cho text. Does it require an empowerment? I have an Amitabha empowerment from Chagdud Khadro but not sure if that qualifies.

You know, I'm not sure. I'm sure the staff at Vimala are used to that sort of question, so I'm sure if you emailed them they'd be able to tell you. Also, if they say it's ok to purchase the text, I think they may have a commentary on the practice by Gyatrul Rinpoche or another qualified lama.

Vimala is a great place to find things - the commentaries are especially good.  One that I keep buying copies of because I keep giving it away is "Instructions for the Transitional State - A Guide for Families and Friends of Vajrayana Buddhists."  This is a manual of instructions for assisting others and preparing for your own death.  It's short, but it covers all aspects - spiritual and material.  It contains, as the description says, "teachings by Buddhist masters concerning the time of death, an example will, a complete check list to help tie up loose ends in the world, suggestions for resource contacts and materials, and a glossary clarifying terms for the non-Buddhist reader."  I cannot recommend this highly enough.  There are other wonderful books dealing with the spiritual aspects of dying, but this one is the most helpful for practical stuff.
