"I have always believed in the quality of life. I want the time that I have left to be full of positive energy. Maybe the next time I hear the word 'hospice,' I’ll think about harps and beautiful music."
"Hospice is a scary word for a lot of people. Whenever I hear that word, I think of death. But hospice is so much more. I made the decision to go to hospice for two reasons: I was tired of medical appointments and treatments; and it was time to give my caregivers a break. It was the best decision. Everyone on the hospice team is wonderful. Our home feels more peaceful. Our daily routines feel more normal. Someone else is taking care of things.
"A harpist even gave us a private concert… A member of our hospice team from Tabitha asked a local harpist to perform for us in our living room in honor of our wedding anniversary. It was beautiful. We had never experienced anything like it.
"When we hear of someone going to hospice, we think it’s just a matter of time. That’s true. It is just a matter of time, but I also think that time matters. I have always believed in the quality of life. I want the time that I have left to be full of positive energy. Maybe the next time I hear the word 'hospice,' I’ll think about harps and beautiful music."

Melvin had long been a fan of his hometown high school football team.
During Melvin’s final year of life, his team made it all the way to the state championship game. Neither Melvin nor his wife ever dreamed he’d be able to attend. But because his hospice team had been caring for him for months and he was still well enough to travel, they made arrangements for Melvin, his wife, his Tabitha Hospice nurse and volunteer to attend the game. He was able to watch his team win the state championship from a Memorial Stadium skybox.
