My mother-in-law was placed into hospice on Friday evening. While this is a tough time for us, she is very much at peace and ready to move on.
The reason this is an anti-rant is because while I've certainly had family members die this is my first experience with hospice. What an amazing subset of people these folks are among us, who I never really thought much about before this. The amount of care and love they've shown to my MIL and family, and to our kids in particular, is amazing.
Nice post... most importantly, all the best to you and yours.
