I am writing to say thank you very much for having a big heart for the needy and more so considering Uganda to be one of the beneficiaries. I acknowledge receipt of the items you sent through Roberta S. and I have delivered them to Hospice Africa Uganda (HAU).

We want to thank you for all your thoughtfulness and kindess in making our wish come true. Francis is a horseman through and through and so enjoyed his time with Misty. It also eased his mind to see how well she is doing. Thank you for giving us a day of special memories. (Albia)

It’s obviously difficult and scary to think about a loved one’s time coming to an end, but for my family, it came down to the comfortability and helping my grandma feel loved in her final days. I didn’t know a lot about hospice until this point and that made me really nervous, but we had someone by our side from Care Initiatives through every step. They were very knowledgeable and answered every question with compassion. My family never felt alone, and I think it takes quality people to achieve that. I couldn’t have asked for better people to have at our side.

Care Initiatives Hospice and their staff were incredibly comforting to our family, and took remarkable care of my mother during the final months of her battle with ALS. We are so thankful for their support and advocacy for her comfort. They took the time to help her with quality of life projects that were important to her, and an incredible surprise and treasure for her family. They went above and beyond to ensure that we created lasting memories that we would all cherish. It takes special people to be able to interact with families anticipating the loss of a loved one, all while focusing on the transition of the loved one to their new home. I recently recommended them to my mother-in-law for a family member. They also had an incredible experience.

We can never thank (Sioux City Hospice volunteer Brian) enough for all the TLC you gave Betsy at the nursing home. If anyone has wings on this Earth, it’s definitely you. And now you have a special angel in Heaven watching over you, and that angel is Betsy!
