Hospice Memories

Dear Lyle and Evelyn:

I've kept the April 12th issue of The Paper on my desk hoping for an opportune moment to acknowledge your excellent coverage under the headline"Hospice, a Celebration of Life." Perhaps the article captured my attention because of an experience a few years ago when I was asked to volunteer in the hospice care of a close friend.

During the few months my friend was under hospice care I was honored to sit at his bedside. We talked and openly shared about his life, his current condition, and the assurance we shared that his forthcoming passing would merely be a threshold to eternal life where there would be no more pain or parting. I'm not sure why, but my friend usually had CNN playing in the background. When the conversation lapsed, or my friend needed a few moments to quietly rest, I thought maybe the daily CNN soundtrack was his reminder that he would soon leave the earthly saga of suffering and conflict behind.

The Paper's hospice article brought those warm bedside visits with my now departed friend to mind. Though I miss him, I am thankful for those times we spent together in hospice. Because of the hospice experience those things that often seem so important, and demand so much time and attention, fall into a larger perspective.

Thanks for the reminder, and thanks for exposing your readership to the hospice alternative.

Blessings,
Carl J. Fielstra
Director, Green Oak Ranch Ministries
