Then my wonderful friends from Hospice appeared…what a difference. I didn’t feel so alone anymore. Now I felt that I had connections – just a phone call away - to deal with so many issues. The wonderful volunteers came and sat while I left for a few hours. When I needed equipment it came so quickly I could not believe it. I knew Hospice was there if I needed help. I cannot tell you how much it meant. To each of you who helped lessen my load, thank you so much.
