In November of 2005, my uncle passed away from non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He was my very favorite uncle and he is greatly missed. He was a resident of Seasons of Life Hospice, here in Parma. The hospice team provided him, my family, and me with such wonderful care and support and we are deeply grateful. We shall never forget their kindness and thoughtfulness.
When things happen to us or to someone we love, such as a terminal illness and perhaps death, we try to provide as much support and nutritional counseling as possible to those involved, so that they can maintain their own good health. Even though we had the support of the Hospice team, we still needed to take care of ourselves. If you are experiencing a similar situation with a loved one, remember that it is important to look after yourself as well. If a loved one’s dying process is just starting, if you are well into it, or if your loved one has passed on and you are here, left behind, you need to take care of yourself. Here are some steps I found to be helpful as I journeyed with my beloved uncle. These steps are especially important during the journey, and afterwards as well.
We need to remember to show compassion and understanding to those in need. I have been blessed with the opportunity to share in the lives of others and to bring the love of God to them. My philosophy is to live life to the fullest, but not to forget the one, who made it all possible. I believe all things have a purpose and happen for a reason. They are stepping stones for all of us to reach our reward; that which we call Heaven and everlasting eternity. Come let us travel together.
