Their are no words to describe how thankful and grateful I am for organizations like Hope Hospice that help patients and their families through the end of one's life. I've had a few relatives receive hospice care and in these experiences, I saw that the angels that work for hospice are not only helpful to the patient and helping them pass with as much dignity and comfort as possible, but they also are so helpful with the family as they cope through a painful time before and after the passing of a loved one.

Those that work in hospice care are a special breed. I just can't imagine going through the peaceful passing of a few of my loved ones without the support of hospice.

They are such a wonderful group that they even stepped forward to reach out to us and other families who had recently suffered a suicide loss in 2010 even though they had never considered this before. I do hope they continued with this program.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
