Be Here Then

why and how to write & create an ethical will, hospice card, or other legacy

Here’s another source of blank cards for your hospice card photo

I haven’t used this company’s website but Strathmore products are always good.  Pricing is on the page.

And if you would like some ideas on how to use a photograph, read this, even if it is about ethical wills and not specifically about hospice cards.

I grew up being told “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”  There may be, of course, some application to hospice situations.  But in reality, many of us simply say nothing because we are afraid of saying the wrong thing, or are afraid of facing a dying person.

Step out of that fear for a moment, and think about being that dying person, and what that fear looks like to them:  silence, countertops empty of cards and photographs and reminders that YOU MATTER.

If you have someone you care about at all currently in hospice care, know that YOU matter, and your reaching out to remind that person that they matter to you will be appreciated.  Do it with a laugh, or with a scriptural reference you think they would appreciate, or just an “I’m thinking of you now.”  But do it.
