Dear Ave Maria Staff,
Each of you are so special to our family. There truly are no words to express the deep gratitude we feel to Ave Maria Hospice. Your compassion and tender care during Mom’s final days touched each of us deeply. We feel so blessed in finding a group of people who brought dignity and such kindness to such a holy, yet difficult time in our lives. May God bless and sustain your ministry for many years to come – it is greatly needed. Please accept this memorial gift, to honor our sweet Mother’s memory.
Blessings to All, E., M., S., G. and H.

Dear Ladies,
I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful care you gave to M. first and then to all of us. Of course we dearly miss her, but we have no doubt where she is.
God Bless all of you, B. and Family

God comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.
When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
2 Corinthians 1:4

Dear Shirley and Staff,
We could never adequately thank you enough for all that you did for our sweet Mama and for us. The care, love, prayers and support will always be remembered. Thank you also for the respect that you always gave to Mama. She always spoke so highly of you all. Thank you for the wonderful birthday cake, plant and Birthday wishes, S. and G. and everyone. We could go on and on and still leave something out! (See, we could never say enough!) You became a part of our family during this time of need. I know Mama is smiling at you all. May God Bless you all!
With Love and Friendship, J., R., J.; M. & L. and the rest of the family.

I have recommended Ave Maria to many people. The love and tender care provided to my Mom was exemplary. Each staff member was attentive to her needs and ours as well. All hospice staff were very knowledgeable.

Dear Shirley,
Thank you for your service to J. and my family during his last hours. Through your assistance, he died at peace physically and more importantly, spiritually.

Dear Shirley,
May you know that the gift the Good Lord has given you is a Blessing. Especially because families like us do not know what to expect when their Loved one is dying. Truly you and M. the care worker and P. helped us more than you can know. T. told me when she met you, “I am so glad that they pray with me.” I prayed like crazy with her every chance we had. …… I pray with all the changes going on in our economy that your ministry to the sick is continued. You all give the individual and family the peace of dying with dignity. May God Bless You and all with Ave Maria Hospice.
With deepest appreciation,
M. R.
P.W. I will truly never forget you.

Dear Shirley,
Thank you for ministering to B. and for helping the rest of us give her what comfort we could. I am especially grateful that we were bathing her and changing her clothes when she passed away. Through all of this, you were our guardian angel. Please give our thanks to H. for helping us during this difficult transition. The enclosed donation to Ave Maria Hospice is a small token of our appreciation.
Sincerely yours, J. and A.

Dear Shirley and Staff,
Just a note to let you all know we’re doing fine. We certainly appreciate all the prayers and support you provided. You made the transition for all of us – including Dad – a little easier. We still miss him very much but know he’s completely free of pain and is waiting for the day we will join he and my Mother.
Sincerely, R. T.
