For the second time this year the Posse and I provide hospice care for a dear friend and family member. First was GingerPeach who passed away May 11. And now, sweet Rocky. His mobility increasingly limited as his spondylosis progresses.
Came across a beautiful quote by Cicely Saunders, nurse, physician, writer, and founder of the modern hospice movement. Sharing it here, along with a few glimpses of the love and life that fill these special days with Rocky.
“You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.“
