“Live with Purpose: Die with Dignity is a book I simply could not put down. In each story the author shares a different experience of what it is like to be a hospice volunteer. The writing is descriptive and the words flow from the heart; I felt like I was sharing the experiences. I intend to use this book as a reference for our volunteer trainings. I would recommend this book to anyone who wonders what it is like to walk beside a person who faces a terminal illness.” ~ Criss East, Coordinator of Volunteers Evergreen Hospice and Palliative Care Kirkland, Washington
