Dying is hard work

“—not the physical part, but that part which is the inside of me, the work about who I am, who I have been, and who I will be.”

– David Kuhl, What Dying People Want

 

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

Caring for those who are suffering,

“whether or not they are dying, wakes us up. It opens up our hearts and our minds. It opens us up to the experience of wholeness.”

-Frank Ostaseski

The hierarchy of grief can get in the way of validating your grief when a friend dies. If you are grieving the loss of a friend, hospice can support you through that mourning process.

This short and heartfelt article is about our "heart muscle memory" that sometimes surprises us like a punch in the stomach, even years after someone loved has died.
