Hospice Event Speaker says We Have Lost Our Way

This month, a group of clergy and faith leaders gathered in the south hills to talk about end of life issues. Among the speakers at Family Hospice & Palliative Care was Rev. Dr. Thomas Long. Long focused his attention less on the patients and the care given to them as they near the end of life and more on the families left behind after their loved one dies. He says we as a society have lost our way when it comes to honoring the dead.
