My father was a Baptist Minister, my mother a Sunday school teacher. While I was growing up we went to retirement homes every Sunday afternoon to visit with some very lonely people, in an effort to brighten their day. These experiences guided me towards a compassionate heart, and today I continue to cultivate compassion and unconditional love through my volunteer work with hospice. I am honored to be a part of Hospice, even if all I’m doing is sitting with someone and holding their hand.
I performed my first wedding in 1998, the year my granddaughter was born – and have brought more than 500 couples together over the years. I love to be a part of people’s special day, the day they promise unconditional love to one another. I also officiate funerals and memorial services where I strive to provide kind words at difficult time.
