Wings is a monthly newsletter about Hospice of Southern Illinois' news, hospice updates,  and information on events, volunteers, and veterans. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness.
Happy Independence Day
Hospice Happenings

This is the first year after losing my Father, December 2015. My first birthday without waking up to the telephone ringing and Dad singing "Happy Birthday." The first Father's Day without my Father.  As a social worker, I know most special days of the first and consequent years after the death of a loved one are difficult. Now it is personal; grief is hard! Let Hospice of Southern Illinois help you.

At Hospice of Southern Illinois, we have available a Newsletter to Help in Bereavement: Journeys. Copies of the Newsletter for our hospice families and members of our grieving community are available free because of a grant from a former patient's family! If you would like a copy mailed to you, please give our office a call to request a copy or to give a donation:  618-235-1703.

In Gratitude, Rebecca Wisdom, President and CEO
