M A. Chandler
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 and all their staff do an amazing job of ensuring everyone concerned is alright right down to the goodbyes. We felt so at home and supported every day. I and truly grateful and will be for the rest of my life for their help. They were simple outstanding!
You know, as my Dad and I grief my mom’s passing….it’s is said you never know what it feels like till you get there in the final moments of saying your goodbyes.
Well, Stepping Stone was the place that did it for us and one of a few final moments of my mom’s talking she said to me.
“You could not have chosen a better place for the ending”…. Those words still bring tears to my eyes….. 5 Days later she passed away.
And indeed we were sent there and in her best interest of her passing way with those wonderful surroundings , we could not have chosen a better place.
I also believe that exposure for Hospice is important and the organisation will have my support and I plan to write a blog on the experience to helps others on the journey through the final days of their life.
Thank you once again for your condolences.
Many blessings in your future endeavors for Hospice East Rand.
Kind regards, Susan Parker Daughter of the deceased Margaret Ann Chandler
