Hospice of Santa Barbara thanks the following people for supporting our work:
"The entire Children and Family Services team for always working so diligently and flexibly to accommodate the needs of families with multiple children so that all the children can be seen in a way that reduces the number of trips that the family has to make to Hospice in any given week." - Kay Sommer
My co-facilitator Terri Bailey. She is a terrific co-facilitator and mom." - Suzanne Retzinger
My mom (Debbie) and wife (Anna) - Watching my wife become a mom this year has magnified my appreciation for mothers. I hadn't realized just all the ways that go into loving a child and want to thank you mom for all those things I now know you must have also done for me as a baby. Your love is my love. Happy Mother's Day!" - Stephen Jones
