I could not, at any age,

“be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”
~Eleanore Roosevelt

Dear Hospice,

“Thank you and your team for all you did for Bob and me. It made it all so much easier. We grew to love the two volunteers you sent. Their approach to Bob was different and exactly right. They were so unstinting with their time. Two remarkable human beings! Thank you for staying in touch.”
~Laura

I've seen and met angels

“wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.”

~Tracy Chapman

In our volunteer training, we spent some time talking about the connections to ancestors that the dying have. What a wonderful gift at the end of one's life ... and a gift for the living to know there are others that their loved one connects to to ease this momentous transition.
