    I think Hospice does a great job listening and adjusting medication. Medication is such a major role in quality of life. I've heard that Hospice also tends to increase one's time because the medical management is so helpful. Keep on, keeping on. You've been such a wonderful support for so many people.

    Dearest Bob:

    I am comforted to know things are not moving as fast as you might have thought when you made the difficult decision. I am in aww that you took on quite the project. Good for you and Marj.

    I think of you often and will continue to hold you both virtually close to my heart.

    And a hug from Cape Cod. So good to read your message. I hope you are still able to go fishing! Those snappers sounded delicious... Here, this is the season for catching striped bass. Big ones!
