I saw my mom finally able to relax…

"I just wish my mom would’ve let me contact you sooner. When the hospice team came and were so loving when they ask about my mom’s wishes, I saw my mom finally able to relax and actually look at peace. I thank God every day for hospice, you are very special people, I just wish patients would not wait so long and know that just because hospice is called in, doesn’t always mean the end. Thank you for taking such loving care of my mama."
