            mydaughtertina Dear Gramof4. Thank you for contacting me. Not doing good, it is supposed to get better, but it gets worst as one thinks back over and over again of all she and I had together. How do you know your husband is at peace, would love to know this. Brenda

            Gramdof4 Hi Brenda...My husband had talked many times about that. I know he wanted to go to heaven and I believe that is where he is!My husband was not in any pain when he died. We are both Christian and I believe I will see him again. I guess that is totally what you believe. I don't know if I would be able to live with myself if I really thought he was not at peace. I pray that you find that peace. Linda

          I have heard such bad stories about hospice. My husband was put on hospice this weekend. I have never met such a nice group of people in all my life. As of this evening they told us the maximum amount of time he would make it would be 2 weeks and was doubtful it would last that long. I am so greatful for all the help these people have given me. thanks Linda
