Words from the Hearts of Our Families

Tim, Henderson, NV                                                                                                       To ALL the staff at Beacon of Hope Hospice, I send my sincerest appreciation to the most wonderful group of people who graciously and lovingly gave their precious time and talent...I shall never forget the exceptional care and consideration each of you provided.  Each and every one of you went far beyond what anyone could expect from complete strangers.

Richard,  Phoenix, AZ:

“I cannot thank your staff sufficiently for the professionalism, care, and extra service that you rendered – from the initial visit in the hospital to end of life.  In addition, you and your staff assisted with disposition of my brother’s belongings, his vehicle, household goods etc.; and went the ‘extra mile’ of service that clearly was above and beyond the usual activities of which I am familiar with a hospice firm.“

Don,  Lake Havasu City, AZ:
Words cannot express our sincere Thank You for all your loving kindness and support your team showed us during our difficult time.  Knowing you were always there for us lifted our spirits and made us able to focus on our true mission:  to provide our loving wife, mother and grandmother our complete devotion of love as she traveled on her journey towards home.”

Mary, Hampton, IL:
Your staff was a huge help while we were dealing with so much.  Not only was the staff helpful but they were very caring and loving.  You held our hands, helped with our fears, and were our voice when the hospital no longer listened to us.  What a wonderful group of people and may God bless each of you. Thank you.

Colleen,  Carpinteria, CA:
Thank you for taking such good care of my childhood friend….I was able to be there with him and see the great care your team took with him.

Kathy, Port Byron, IL:
Thank you most of all for helping me usher mom into the new world with dignity.

Jackie,  Irvine, CA:
Thank you for all the kind and loving care you gave to my mom.  I had the pleasure of meeting several of you during my visits….you truly have a special gift.

Roxanne, Davenport, IA:
You all are Angels on Earth.

Terry, Davenport, IA:
Your support and help has made our lives and least few weeks of my dad’s life so much better. God has given you all a gift. Bless you all.

Donna, Davenport, IA:
Thank you so very much for everything you did for mom. You made her last days as comfortable as possible and we could not have gotten through this without you. Your compassion and spiritual help were unmatched.

Chris, Davenport, IA:
We can’t thank you enough for you compassion and caring. We shall never forget everything you have done for us.

Chuck, Lake Havasu City, AZ:
Everyone that we encountered were very professional and caring which made a big difference to us at a very difficult time. Thank you all for your care, compassion and professionalism.
