My mother suffered a slow decline in health through much of the 1990s, and has been gone for six years now. I and most of my eight siblings took turns giving her in-home caregivers a much-needed break.
After she died, I volunteered with an area hospice organization. I had the privilege of sharing time with a handful of wonderful patients before they died.
