    Shani, thank you for sharing from your heart and expertise! Your volunteer work and insight into this subject is not only heartwarming but informative in advocating for people who may be too fragile physically and mentally to do for themselves. To me, end-of-life is a sacred time for every human being! Kindness and compassion can connect us as brothers and sisters in the same human family! You walk the talk! Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Dorothy. Your personal support is always appreciated and so is the good work you do with older adults.

  3. I'm just so proud of the work you have done with hospice and educating the public at large in regards for the need to do more. Thank you for sharing your wisdom on this topic.

  4. Whoever you are, thanks for that beautiful word bouquet.
