Mr. L's wife had been treated for cancer for eight years by a local physician. When the end was near, the Doctor recommended Cornerstone Hospice and contacted them for Mr. and Mrs. L. Cornerstone Hospice cared for Mr. and Mrs. L, as well as her son in the week before Mrs. L. died. They did a lot for them without getting in the way, preserving their privacy. They answered the questions about the dying process and procedures. Hospice provided Mr. L. with lists of funeral homes, crematories, etc. The best thing that Hospice did was the nursing care for Mrs. L. They provided drugs, baths, beds and much needed advice. This was the first experience with Cornerstone Hospice for Mr. L. and he wishes to share it with the general public. Cornerstone enabled Mrs. L. to die peacefully in her own living room with her son and husband each holding one of her hands. The services of Cornerstone Hospice were a godsend to Mr. L. and were provided at no cost. Thanks from Mr. L. and his son.
