Thanks JuneBug, you caught me on a good day. Most days, I'm just a work in progress.
Earth263, you can begin almost any prayer by "giving thanks for the friends with us today and the time we have together. Thank you for giving us the example of your Son, who taught us how to best love one another. Thank you for the strength you have given us and be with us in the days to come."
I am sorry I overlooked this in the first reading of your post. Please let us know how this is coming along.
BTW: Hospice programs also do the very best job at managing end-of-life care with dignity, respect and excellent pain/symptom management.
