Good Information

This is from an email I sent my family last week:

I would STRONGLY recommend this site to anyone who's going to die, dying, or who loves someone who is dying. There are topics for patients, parents of young children, caregivers, and piles of information on many many topics... I've spent hours and hours reading on this site because it's so helpful for me. Youghta check it out: http://www.hospicenet.org/

This is one example, about grief/bereavement http://www.hospicenet.org/html/knowledge.html

Here's one you probably don't want to read but should read on end stages of life http://www.hospicenet.org/html/preparing_for.html

This is an AMAZING description of how children from newborn to age 18 understand/respond to death/how to support children--all of you parents of children in this age range should definitely read this http://www.hospicenet.org/html/understand.html

I would apologize for being bossy or demanding, but I'm not going to because I think this information would be really helpful for you and your children.

Heaps and piles of warm fuzzies and love, Martha


  1. Unless our Lord returns soon every one of us will need this information at some point for ourselves and/or someone dear to us! Hospice has expressed it well with much experience and sensitivity...thanks for sharing with us all! love you lots! love your 'something dangerous' also!
