As the Volunteer Coordinator for Envoy Hospice in Fort Worth, I was blessed to have been awarded an Art Book by the magnificent Mark Lombard, in Memory of an Amon Carter Employee's Father. Many of our Envoy Hospice Volunteers have been thrilled to share this wonderful Art experience with our Hospice patients over the past year & it has brought joy & comfort to many afflicted with life-threatening illness & are at end-of-life. Also, I was fortunate to have the book with me during one of my recent Hospice Patient reviews in a Facility. I opened the book to show it to our patient as we sat at a table in a common area. Soon, along came a lady to join us, I showed the art pictures to both of them & we each gave our thought as to what the artist may have been thinking, then a few minutes later, there were "8" people at the table, all eagerly looking, talking & laughing & sharing about the art work! It was a glorious experience for ALL of us, especially me!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This is an extraordinary charity that purveys joy to those in their final days through the simplicity of art.
