Five years ago, I sadly lost my mother to breast cancer. During her final days, she was a resident at the Williamsburg Hospice House, and I am not sure there are the words to express how grateful I am that this organization exsists within the Williamsburg-area. The warmth and devotion of their staff, who went to great pains to ensure that, not only was my mother comfortable, but that myself, father and brother were, too, was extraordinary. Additionally, the patience that they exhibited as various friends of my parents, travelled, from all over the country, to say their last good-byes to my mother was both kind and extremely generous. Lastly, the Williamsburg Hospice House provides free grief-counseling, for up to one year, for the family members of people who passed away, while in residence there. This was both a valuable and much-needed resource for me, as I went through a very difficult time, and I am grateful for not only the kindness, but the expertise of their grief counselors. While no one ever wants a loved one to be in hospice care, I cannot say enough good things about the Williamsburg Hospice House, and their knowledgeble, kind-hearted, and dedicated staff.
