Thank You Letters
To the most awesome people in the world
My Dad (Jack Gericke) was admitted to Stepping Stone on Father’s day. He was very ill and had a lot of pain, and he passed away on 26 June 2017.
We can’t describe the heartache to have lost him – he was our Father, our Hero, our last surviving parent, but we know God took him to spare him from the pain he went through, and we accept that, as that was the best for him, but it does not take away the pain and emptiness we feel without him.
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!
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)…
We salute you and say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
To whom it may concern,
I would like to take the opportunity to say a HUGE thanks to all the staff at Stepping Stone Hospice Alberton for all their kindness, love and humanity that they have shown us over the past few years that we have had dealings with them.
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.
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.
THANK YOU, 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.
Willem Johannes Pretorius
Graag wil ons, die familie van Willem Pretorius vir u uit die diepste punt van ons harte dankie se vir alles wat jul vir hom gedoen het gedurende sy tyd daar. Dankie dat jul almal jul harte oopgemaak het vir ons Eggenoot, Vader, Oupa, Broer en Vriend. Dankie dat jul sy laaste tydjie so gerieflik as moontlik gemaak het.

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!
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.
Dear Stepping Stone Hospice and all Staff
Thank you for a fantastic ANNUAL MEMORIAL DAY yesterday.
I still hurt a lot as my husband Robert Mey, passed away on 22 December 2015.
Yesterday was not easy at all BUT ….. thank you from the bottom of my heart for every hug, every tissue, all the love and all the comforting words from all at Hospice.
