To our dear Stepping Stone family,

To our dear Stepping Stone family, Firstly I want to apologize, as English is my second language and my pronunciation might not be correct but that is not what this is about – it is about a young mother saying goodbye to her children, grandchildren, friends and family… Oh, and food (you will understand this as I move on)… Our dearest mom was always in love with eating – anything sweet, savory etc, and Mom would be happy. I will never forget having tea with Mom and having some of the cake she bought or food she cooked. Today I miss those more than ever! During Mom’s 6-month battle...

Thank you!!!

HI Sister Sheryl and All At Stepping Stone I am not actually quite sure how to thank you for everything you all did for me and my family in the short time that we knew you all while my mom was there, we will carry you all close to our hearts forever! From the moment that we went to see you, you were all honest with us and told us how everything would work, you all gave us love and support when we were all uncertain, sad and scared. I thank you all from deep in side me for everything you did for my mom whilst she was there, the love and kindness that you showed her, making her comfortable...

Brian Richards

Dear Tersia Our world is now starting to get back to some form of normality and whilst we all have our very sad days and miss Brian tremendously we have all started moving forward and tackling every day one day at a time. November to February went by as a whirlwind as we tried to understand why Brian was so ill and then, once we found out that he had cancer, how best to support him and his brave decisions over the remaining four weeks we were privileged to spend with him. We were blessed to have a son who embraced this terrible illness and bravely faced his last few weeks in a positive...

M A. Chandler

Brenda,Many thanks for your letter of condolences. However, we are unable to fill in this request forms as Hospice East Rand were unable to help us in our time of need. God had others plans for my mom and we took time to take note of this and followed where he took us. My mom passed away at Stepping stone in Alberton. It was the incredible staff there at Stepping Stone that took care of my mom and we are very grateful to them for everything they did. Their staff were incredible and the support structure there was amazing. CEO Tersia Burger, Sr Sheryl Newman and Sr Engela Rademeyer...

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Good day to all the staff, caregivers at Hospice Stepping Stone On behalf of my dad, myself Barbara and my Family, I would just like to thank everyone at Stepping Stone for everything you all did for my dad. Words cannot explain how I feel, with the care that my dad received. I knew he was very happy to stay as when I took him out he was very eager to get back and when I asked him if he wanted to go home for the weekend, he opted to stay in the care of all the caregivers, Sister’s etc. I realised that when my dad was admitted to Hospice, before that I was running round in circles?...

Veronika Dos Santos

Thank you to Stepping Stone Hospice ‘outpatient’ Veronika Dos Santos for this heartfelt piece about her experience with us, which she sent to her company to encourage support for our organisation… “Thank you so much to everyone for all your prayers, your love, your care and the little angles who support us with our needs from time to time. You know how Mike likes to tell me to keep things short… you know me… no such thing! When I do stuff… I go big or go home! Past seven months have been INTERESTING; maybe not the most appropriate description of my experience, however it serves...

Dear Sr. Sheryl and all, without exception, at Stepping Stone Hospice As you know, Maude, my beloved mom-in-law, great friend, beloved mother and greatest friend of my wife Tracey and son Neil and favourite granny of both Tracey’s and Neil’s children, was called to Heaven, home of the Almighty Father our Lord, at midnight today. Here her soul will live forever in the Peace of His Kingdom.
