After posting that terrible sad story of a woman dying alone it seems only right to insert in this place a cudo for Hospice.
The person who made the call trying to ensure that someone connected to the dying woman be present at her end was clearly a Hospice person. I too am a Hospice person. I too believe that no person should die alone, or in pain, should they so desire.
God bless Hospice for all that they do all over the world. All those who work and volunteer and all who take training with a Hospice society.
God bless you all.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in; their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within. - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
