We've had Hospice care nurses, aides, social workers and volunteers in the house for about 3 weeks now. At least one person comes daily. Sometimes 2 or 3. They've been wonderful.....God sent! These are a special kind of people. The nurse gave us a booklet to read yesterday, " Gone From My Sight." It describes different stages to expect in the death process. At the end of the booklet is a poem by Henry Van Dyke. Being a lover of the sea, you can imagine this one hit home.
