Erica, Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude to you and Mary for the guidance, support, and amazing kindness provided to my family during my mom’s recent passing. As you know, mom’s illness was brief and devastating . She was faced with few treatment options (none of which would cure her or improve the quality of her life). When she made the amazingly brave decision to go home to hospice care, we had no idea what to do. We had never navigated a home hospice journey, we didn’t know what to expect, we didn’t know what to do next. Before mom even left the hospital, I called you. I knew that you were a life transition doula, but I had never worked with a doula, nor had anyone in my family. All I knew was that mom didn’t have a lot of time left and we needed a guiding light in the darkness. That is exactly what you and Mary have been. Our time with you was emotional, challenging, and incredibly beautiful. You asked the right questions that helped us learn what was important to mom: how she wanted to spend the time she had left, what she wanted us to know, what she wanted to do, what she wanted us to do for her. When her journey was coming to an end, you and Mary helped us understand what to expect. You held mom’s hands and provided comfort and reassurance. It is because of you, Mary, and our amazing hospice team that we were able to fulfill mom’s wish to spend her final days in the way she wanted.
