I received a letter today that someone donated to Victoria Hospice in memory of my dad. My dad was in hospice for 10 days in March of this year. We are fortunate that we were able to work on his final wishes before he passed. He chose Victoria Hospice as a charity that people could donate to in his memory if they wished because he was so grateful for the care he received. He was also very grateful for the care my mom received when she stayed in hospice in 2020.
Why is this beautiful?
- I am touched that people are thinking of dad and donating in his memory.
- Victoria Hospice is a beautiful place at a difficult time. Truthfully, the physical space is not that beautiful, it is the atmosphere created by the caring people who work there that is beautiful.
- The times I spent in hospice with both my parents are incredibly special to me. We were surrounded by love and there were actually many fun times at hospice along with the sad ones. It was a time when I appreciated every moment because I knew our time together was precious. It is a good reminder to really live each moment that we have and appreciate the people in our lives.
- I am grateful/honoured/humbled that I was able to be with my parents at the end of their time on earth. It truly changed me for the better.
