I had a chance Thursday night to spend some time with the very special people who make up the staff of Community Health Professionals in Delphos.
I was playing a little dinner music for their annual hospice benefit at the Delphos Eagles.
If you have ever been around the nurses who provide the end-of-life care that is hospice, I’m sure you know what I mean by special people.
How they do the work that they do is amazing to me.
The compassionate way they help their patients and patient’s families to cope with very difficult situaitons is something that makes me pretty sure there’s a special place in Heaven for them.
The people who turned out to enjoy dinner, and to buy silent and live auction items, helped to raise funds to provide assistance particularly when insurance or family resources don’t exist to cover expenses.
Our colleague Rick Miller did his usual outstanding job serving as the evenings master of ceremonies.
We’ve agreed it’s one of our favorite volunteer opportunities of the year.
It was a pleasure to be asked to provide a little music for the evening and to do just a little bit to help.
That’s the way I see it.
