An End-of Life Journey from the Heart

Friday, June 08, 2018 | Joe Nester

For families who are considering hospice believe me I've been where you are. My father died last Saturday of cancer. Greg Charlton and his team from Agape hospice came in and surrounded my dad, myself, and the rest of our family with all the love, care, patience, friendship, and support that I could have ever asked for or ever imagined. I can't imagine traveling this road without them. In the short time my dad was in hospice before he passed away these people touched our lives in a way that I will never forget. I know that I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and I will be able to share what a difference hospice made for myself and my family as well as my dad. You are truly an amazing group of people and I am eternally grateful that you were a part of my life. Thank you for taking care of my dad and making the days that he had as easy as possible.

Our Family wants to thank Agape for the way your staff ministered to us during the decline of our father and husband, Joe. We are so appreciative of the resources and services Agape provided us, and we're also thankful for the loca and care your staff gave Joe and his wife Ann.


Our hospital is a tertiary care facility that is right off interstate. We get patients from across the country and around the world. This has been my most difficult placement. Assisting a patient back to Pakistan was easier than South Carolina. Your team will remain in my contact list. I only wish I had found them sooner.
