A short film directed and produced by Valerie Zehring in October, 2015, featuring the men and women connected with Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County. “Hospice work has always been near and dear to my heart,” explains Zehring, “I have been a hospice volunteer in the past and have sat with people who were dying, including several of my own siblings. It is true--there is no greater privilege than to sit with the dying. You will learn more about yourself in those moments than in any other life experience. Difficult? Yes. Rewarding? Like nothing else! I dedicate this first film to my brother, Dan, who I took care of while he was dying of AIDS. It was in this time that I first learned what the hospice concept was all about and became so interested in helping people to have a good death."
Please take a moment to watch this lovely short film. Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County wishes to thank Valerie Zehring for her vision and excellent film she has created. We wish to thank all the participants, as well. And we wish to thank our wonderful community and supporters who have made our work possible. November is Hospice Awareness Month. Please consider supporting us or volunteering with us. If you enjoyed this film, please feel free to share it. Thank you. Flic Shooter, Director HVOWC
