  I have had the honor of experiencing a few loved ones pass on. It has been the most profound spiritual influence in my life. The information given was very helpful in every level. Now that I have terminal illness, I am more at peace. Thank you for the opportunity to share.

I have been an in home health care worker since I got out of high school. I never did want to do hospice care because I get way to attached. I just had my first hospice care experience. The man decided to stop all cancer treatments and just live out what was left of his life. I went my first day after missing a week due to an injury not knowing what to do or expect out of the situation. After reading your answer about things that happen with the body, I realized I did everything just right. I wanted to know why he was turning yellow, even though I kind of knew already. You reassured me with that as well. I am so glad I got the chance to meet this wonderful man.
