Hospice and Grief: Paul & Sylvia's Love across the veil
It will be 2-weeks tomorrow that My Sylvia passed. During those quick and over-whelming events which brought us to the emergency room and finally to a local hospice, my panic attacks increased, my stress-level went through the roof and I thought my mind was going to EXPLODE! For therapy, I opened Sylvia’s laptop, gathered every eMail address I could find and began typing. The eMails were rough, raw and most of the grammar didn’t make sense. All I know is that several people have told me that my eMails have touched them in some way or that our story has made them appreciate their loved ones a bit more. They told me I had opened my heart and poured out my soul.
I’ve been encouraged by others to make these eMails available in book form, in order to help those who find themselves facing a hospice situation. My eMails explain what we went through... as we were going through it.
