My condolences to your family. My father died at home in the care of hospice and it was so good for us all. I also work for a hospice agency and know how hard our nurses work and the interest they take in patients and thier families.

While my mother was dying from ovarian cancer, I was given the following book as a gift, which was extraordinarily helpful and I highly recommend:

Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate And Spiritual Guide To Coping With Loss

May all your fond memories give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

What a gift for everyone to get together for a final good-bye. I have no doubt she was holding out to see your son and her great-grandson to be. God's blessings to you and your family.

Kairol Rosenthal

I write about young adults with cancer, and am a patient myself. We young ones tend to shun end of life care up until the very last moment because we cling on to the hope that our youth will save us. I have talked to many bereaved young spouses who in retrospect wish they had engaged hospice care much earlier on in the process.

I am glad you were able to be together as a family. I have had similar experiences around the death of family members. They were quite profound experiences.

My father died a sad death after a long bout with a chronic, debilitating disease. He did not enjoy his last years and it was tough on everyone close to him. We usually don't get to choose how our days are spent (recently I had two friends close to my age commit suicide so I suppose they did decide how to end their life) but we'd all like to do it "our way". It would be a blessing.

Ralph and Noel Burr

Dear B and D, Noel and I offer our sincere condolences. D, your chronicalling of this woman's wonderful life is a great tribute to her. Our thoughts and prayers and with her and your family.

Your mother-in-law's hospice story is one of the most beautiful I've heard. Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope many more will read it & learn how wonderful hospice can be at the end of life.

I wish you & your family peace as you grieve for your inspirational mother-in-law.

George Pollock

So generous of you to share your husband's thoughts with us. Interesting that he has stopped taking statins and is the better for it. My doctor wants to double my dose; I'm thinking about cutting it out altogether. Also read your account of your mother-in-law's passing and found it beautiful, in the writing and in the heartfelt story you shared. Thank you.
