Wine Tasting
BJ had such a sweet smile. She loved animals. She was an artist and a very successful entrepreneur. At 74, she was a successful entrepreneur and fiercely independent. Her cancer, though, made it impossible to live alone any longer.

Opening up and trusting folks did not come easy to her. Our staff, volunteers and her hospice team did a beautiful job of winning BJ over and providing her with love, care and a sense of safety.

During her time at ABODE, BJ asked each of us to sign the legs of her red stool. On the top she wrote: “Four strong legs are needed for a firm foundation. Thank you, Earth Angels, for holding me up.” – BJ Gillespie, 11/2020

We were all honored to be part of BJ’s team of Earth Angels. We think of her often.
