The Washington Home & Community Hospices held a memorial and tribute bricks dedication to loved ones in the reflection garden on Sept. 14. Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave, founder of the Light of Healing Hope Foundation, who has generously donated thousands of volumes of her inspirational poetry prompted by the losses September 11, provided copies of her most recent compilation, "Healing Courage Messages of Love, Hope, and Strength," available Oct. 1. “We are blessed when we share the stories of our loved ones and when we listen to others’ stories,” Rev. Robert Wellington said, as red chrysanthemums were placed on the memorial bricks.






“I am still in shock over the death of my wife, who was my best friend, but your hospice staff gave a priceless gift to my wife and me. You all gave my wife comfort from pain and you are helping me get through the worst time in my life.  I will never forget your quiet compassion and excellent medical skills. Thank you.”


“There’s a special place in Heaven for the women and men who work in hospice care.  On behalf of our son who slipped these mortal bonds in your gentle care, I thank you.”


“Not a day goes by that I don’t think about how lucky our family was to have our dear mother in the capable and loving hands of your Community Hospices’ staff during the final weeks of her life.  We were with her when she died peacefully at home and now my sisters and I know that we will choose hospice care for our own final days. “
