I lost my dad last Fall. Because of the amazing hospice care and facility, he died peacefully with dignity. As soon as my family and I walked into the facitily we instantly felt a sense of peace and calm. He had a private room with french doors that led to a small porch. The building looked more like a Cape Cod bungalow filled with flowers and seaside themed decor. There was also a kitchen, children's play area, chapel and living area for families to retreat to.

The staff were always pleasant checking in often, not only on dad but our family as well. Volunteer Veterans were on site and held a pinning ceremony for my dad. The facilities Pastor visited often as well. It just made the whole experience of losing the greatest man in our lives MUCH easier. All I could think of was how wonderful it would be for many other families and ill loved ones to have the same experience.

Ever since I was a girl (I"m a 44 year old girl now!) my dad and I went for walks. He always loved to walk and did so practically everyday. Our walks gave us the opportunity to talk about things we saw or did, but more importantly the chance to bond even closer. Sometimes we didn't say much at all.
So I thought about holding a Walk With Bob fundraiser (he would never want anything to be FOR him...he was too modest!) and raise funds for hospice care.
