“Hope is like the sun, which as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.”– S. Smiles

Bereavement Library

Hospice of St. Francis has a library of information that will help you develop a deeper understanding of grieving, healing and self-help. We also offer a Grief Support Reading Program through which meaningful, helpful and inspirational readings are mailed free to participants as part of a 13-month, nine-installment program. The library and reading program are two more ways Hospice of St. Francis cares for patients and supports their loved ones.
