I am a Hospice CNA and when someone is "active", meaning actively dying where we figure it will be a couple hours at most, we always have someone out there to sit with the patient and their family until the patient passes. I was on my way to one today in the worst pouring rain I've seen in a long time. Once the patient passed I went outside and saw this:

Its a double rainbow! The one on top is much less bright, but its still there! I thought it was amazing!

Thank you for being a hospice CNA, my adopted dad died in 1988 and was on hospice and it takes a special person to be there for the family and the patient during the end times, we so appreciated the hospice team. Thank you!!!

Love the Rainbows, they are special during such a time. I always called it "doubly blessed" plus when you think that we refer to the Rainbow bridge for our animals and I believe I will be going to where my animals are your patient crossed the rainbow bridge!!!! How wonderful to have proof of that.......

Thank you so much for that lovely picture and thank you for the work you do in Hospice.

I was a volunteer for several years when I lived in Pensacola FL, and helped open an agency in Dothan AL. as they say:

" All you can do... is ALL you can do"

Be blessed

Hospice is full of the most wonderful people I have ever met.  It's amazing what they do for you and the way they do it.  Everyone makes you feel like they have known you forever, they are like family.  Not sure what we would have done without them when my Mom died 1 1/2 years ago. 

 

Thank you for all you do...

That's a great thing you do. My birth father was just moved to hospice the other day after his liver failed altogether. Kidneys will be next and the is nothing they can do. I'm hoping at this point that he doesn't have to linger in pain. Wonderful picture...

We had hospice when my Mom died 12 years ago, oh, April 2nd, didn't realize it was so close.  They are a very caring group, I don't know how you do it, and I don't know how Dad and I would have done it without them.  God Bless you all.  Thanks for the picture.
