February 7

February 7 – Today is my father’s birthday. It’s also the day for his transition to home hospice. This is a celebration tinged with sadness, but above all, we are grateful and feeling blessed.

This is one of the to-be-remembered catalysts of shared family memories because this week siblings are coming home to help and cousins and nephews and nieces are in the loop, via phone and the social web.

This is our latest in family vacations and it’s deeply sad and joyous. We are feeling blessed to have this sacred time together.

March 8 – Feeling the love today with family and friends. Yesterday my father passed away.


Hospice = Type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of the chronically ill and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs.
