Today I received an award from Hospice of Huntington for my services as a Patient Volunteer. I was shocked, but very grateful, to receive it. In the picture below you can’t really see the beautiful little glass angel statuette that I received in addition to the certificate, as it’s mostly hidden inside my big hand!
One of the reasons given for my award is that I wrote a story about being present during the death of one of my Hospice patients. That story is now being used as part of the training material for new Patient Volunteers. It’s very gratifying to see a piece of my writing being put to such good use.
