Hospice Journey Stories
Here are some of the letters we've received from people sharing what Hospice Journey has meant to them and their loved ones:
I can't thank you all enough for creating the Hospice Journey website. I came upon it while trying to distract myself from the heartbreaking task of caring for my Mom who was dying from lung cancer.
The website was perfect because I found it when Mom no longer wanted to speak to or see anyone other than my sisters and myself. It helped keep everyone informed on Mom's condition without me having to repeat it over and over. At the end of each day, I would read the comments written in Mom's guest book. I felt comforted reading the lovely words about Mom, and Mom enjoyed when I would read them to her.
Mom passed in the early morning of October 1. And as much as I miss her and hate that she had to experience the agony of cancer - I'm grateful for the Hospice team and our Hospice Journey website. It made a terrible time just a bit more bearable. So thank you, for your hard work and compassion and dedication. It meant so much to me and my family.Jenny M.
I just want to express my gratitude for the service you provided with Hospice Journey. My mother died in February at only 63, of cancer.
At a time when we were dealing with the eventual loss of our loved one, our Hospice Journey website brought our family closer and made it easy to keep everyone updated. It was comforting to see loved ones' posts, memories and pictures. Thank you so much for your dedication and hard work.Stacy W.
Thank you so much for providing my husband with the opportunity to share his end of life journey with his loved ones. I believe the correspondence extended and enriched his life and will be with us always. It was truly extraordinary.Rebecca W.
I want to thank you for creating this site. I have an Aunt who is cared for by her daughter-in-law in Mississippi and it warms my heart to know that all I have to do is open my email and find an update on my Aunt, sent by her Hospice Journey website. It makes it so much easier on my family here in Indiana to know how she is doing every day without the long distance phone calls which as you know can rack up one’s phone bill.
I wish this site would have been around in 2008-2009 when my father was in hospice care. It would have made it so much easier to update all family members at one time. I am eternally grateful for the hospice team that took care of my dad for the last 6 months of his life and the year afterwards that they kept checking on me. Hospice helped me understand what was happening to him, especially as I watched him pass away holding my hand.
I think Hospice Journey has a long life and I am and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to keep in touch with my family in Mississippi during this trying time in our lives. Thank you so very much for your generosity.Cyna R.
