“My first experience with hospice was with my closest friend; I was honored to hold his hand when he died. Next was with my father-in-law, a situation in which I asked the oncologist to explain the hospice option to him; our family was with him when he died. Both of these deaths occurred at home, and the idea of a hospice house seemed like a very good one to me, particularly in service to those who do not have good alternatives.”
