Grief is personal. The healing from the loss of a loved one is a journey with many different paths.

No one knows this better than the professionally trained staff and volunteers who provide the compassionate care and guidance to individuals and families through McLeod Hospice Grief Recovery Program.

Audrey Gilbert is both one of those volunteers and a generous supporter of the Hospice program. Audrey has been keenly aware of the importance of charitable gifts to providing the entire range of services to all who need them regardless of their ability to pay. Audrey annually contributes as a Tree sponsor for the annual A Light for Someone You Love Tree Lighting, helped build the addition to the Hospice House and has made an estate commitment that will ensure compassionate care for years to come.

Audrey has been regularly attending the afternoon Grief Recovery Group for five years. As Audrey shares, "The first several years were for me, but as I found the peace of healing, I began to recognize the struggles the new members were experiencing. I knew that I could help others with their journey by drawing on my own."

Gifts from donors to McLeod Hospice have helped brokenhearted individuals and families move through their grief and transform their personal loss into new possibilities for tomorrow.
