“Like many, my first experience with hospice was long ago, and far away. My last experience was recent, and up close. When there was no longer the hope of long life, The Friends of Caroline brought us the reality of quality of life. They were there for my family and me, supporting and helping us in ways we didn’t even realize we needed – but that we’ll never forget, and always be thankful for.”
-Laurence Koolkin, Beaufort, SC – whose wife Lainie Andrew died peacefully at home, surrounded by family, after 4 months of superb palliative care.
“Prior to Ken’s diagnosis, we always looked forward to The Festival of Trees. As a part of the Beaufort community, we felt that Friends of Caroline Hospice must be an organization worth supporting…but I know, now, that until you need them, you never truly understand what it’s all about. Angels. It’s about angels…”
Jenny Bush, Beaufort, SC
