Review:

During my twenty-six years with hospice, I ve often tried to describe how deeply enriching it is for those of us who are privileged to work with the dying and with their families. In these true stories, Jean Linderman puts words to paper on what we in hospice have always known, but had no way to tell others. --Pat Stropko-O Leary, RN, BS, MBA Executive Director, Hospice of Medina County Barberton Hospice and Palliative Care Robertson Bereavement Center

As I read Sacred Stories, I am struck by the manner it displays the interactions around life, simple yet complex. These stories depict the grit of living in the face of death, the small wonders and sacred interactions between loved ones as well as the pain and emotion of loss. With many of these vignettes I could easily trace my experiences in dealing with not only personal loss but also with those patients and families that have invited me to share in their lives. These stories makes one appreciate the variety of life as well as the need to consider the finish. May our souls and lives be enriched by the sacred stories of others. --Jeff Lycan President/CEO Ohio Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
