Because of you we were able to honor my father’s wishes . . .

Jack Hoffman's Memory StoneThank you all so much for the love and care you provided my Dad during his last few days in this world. He is now free of his physical self and the pain it brought him. He is in the loving arms of God, with my Mom, his family and friends who all left before him.

Words can’t truly express our thanks and gratitude to all of you at Caring House and the caregivers from Torrance Hospice. Because of you we were able to honor my father’s wishes to not pass in an institutional environment as did his mother and many of his friends. Thanks to Caring House and Torrance Hospice, we were able to move my Dad to a beautiful, comfortable and caring environment where he could spend his last days.

Caring House allowed our family to physically be with Dad and not have to talk to him over the phone looking through a plate glass window. We were able to talk to him, to hold him, to tell him we loved him. We let him know that we will miss him greatly but we will take care of each other as he had always done for his family and that when he was ready to go, it was ok.

Our family will always be grateful to Caring House and the opportunity you gave our family to say goodbye to my Dad.

I hope that many more families will find you so they will experience the same love you showed us. Thank you again and God Bless the Caring House.

— Nancy Ralsten, daughter of Jack Hoffman, Caring House resident
