Jane, 74, came to us under the wonderful care of the ChristusHospice team. Jane had worked as the receptionist in her brother’s dental office – coincidentally, Volunteer Susan Moreno’s dentist! We’re starting to see these kinds of connections more and more.
Jane was with us a little over two weeks. Susan and Volunteer Jen LeCavalier were with her when she died.
Here’s Jen’s description of Jane’s final moments:
“What a special passing Jane had! I opened the patio door for the sun setting, birds singing, cicadas gearing up – and I described it all to her. I massaged her hands and shoulders and prayed and told her, ‘I bet you helped lots of people who were afraid to see the dentist. You were the first impression for so many and the person they needed to make them feel safe.’
“Her breathing stayed so paced and relaxed the whole time. Very peaceful. A sweet way to pass with the sun!”
A sweet way, indeed. RIP, Jane.
