Remember… Share a thought, a memory, offer a prayer or a reflection. Remember a time, a place, a person, whoever or whatever you like. You may use the “Leave a Reply” area below to share your thoughts.

Gathered together, our memories are a loving tribute to the lives and stories of people we have known and cared about; people who have touched our hearts; even our souls. It is a visual testimony of the rich tapestry of lives that have been interwoven with ours. It is a reminder that life matters.

    I understand why Hospice is referred to as a “gift”. It certainly was for our family. The gift was an unexpected renewed relationship with my husband’s Italian mother. The people and atmosphere at the Inpatient Hospice Unit at Holy Redeemer were not only comforting to her but also a blessing to our family. At their suggestions, we were able to share memories as we reviewed pictures that celebrated her life (and learned about a secret sweetheart from her teens). We listened to her favorite music (Italian of course)while eating her favorite foods (also Italian). Her sisters visited from out of town, her friends consoled her, she mended an old friendship and all of her fears were relieved. As her illness progressed and her life shortened, our knowledge of who she was expanded. Her end of life was peaceful and ours renewed.

        I was a former neighbor of your mother. While volunteering in inpatient at Hospice, I visited your mother and she certainly was very pleasant and happy during the time I spent with her. We talked of her children and my children, who were around the same age, and the neighborhood and our church affiliation with the Seniors of St. Albert the Great. I was most happy that I spent some time with her before her passing away.

        Sincerely, Ann Stumpo
