These pages were created to share Akka’s journey with those who couldn’t be here.
I found it impossible to capture the profundity, the mundane and the totality of this special time. I am sure that I have not done justice to everyone’s very personal experience, especially that of my family. For that I offer my sincerest apologies and ask your forgiveness.
Thank you to all who took and shared their photos and videos.
Since Akka’s death I renewed my passion for hospice and hospice palliative care. This website now also hosts the Support and Resources for Death and Dying pages that you may want to refer to if you find yourself on a similar journey. There is a lot of very helpful information here, including where to get support and how to navigate the system. If you would like to chat about your circumstances, please feel free to reach out by email here. In the meantime, you can start looking at the tips, lessons learned and resources here.
Thank you for embarking on this trip!
