Hospice privileged to serve

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Staff of Hospice of Limestone County and myself, I would like to convey our sincere appreciation for the lovely 25th Anniversary Celebration that was given in our honor.

When “your” Hospice started in 1988, by a group of concerned and committed citizens who sought to enhance care to the dying in our community, they each brought with them their own voice and vision. Hospice of Limestone County has grown and flourished for the last 25 years with that unique gift of our original board and volunteers who were so instrumental in establishing a program that would meet the needs of our community.

Hospice of Limestone has worked diligently to help our community better understand death and dying issues, and to give people the quality assistance they need to cope with loss in both their personal and professional lives.

Each of our families has added a new dimension to our lives. We have grown as individuals by walking with them through a very intimate time of their lives. It reminds me of a rainbow or collage of faces and thoughts that brings each one to mind, a smile to the face or a tear to the eye.

I personally would like to thank the citizens of Limestone County for the privilege of service and the opportunity to share your lives. Hospice of Limestone continues to grow, flourish and multiply services for our community because it has been loved and nurtured. Thank you Board of Directors for your guidance and most especially, thank you citizens of Limestone County.
