Gary, 81, came to us because his wife Jenn loves ABODE and very much wanted him to be here when he died. The timing worked beautifully, and we were able to care for him in partnership with Trinity Hospice.
Gary was an Army Veteran and received a final salute from Retired Air Force Colonel Hal Smarkola. Gary’s son and daughter were so touched to witness Col. Smarkola’s important tribute. (Hal drove through a terrible rainstorm to get here that day.)
Jenn and family were very appreciative of their time at ABODE and eagerly embraced all the contemplative practices that we offer, making for a truly beautiful and transformative experience.
