From the moment she arrived and was put in the “Green Room” with me by her side, the process of “dying” became more of a process of “living and loving every moment.”

You and your volunteers gave such a wonderful service to my brother “Gerald Pine”. We will never forget the kindness that you didn’t have to do! Lynn even fixed a “steak”, which was Gerald’s last supper! We want to thank “you all” so very much. God bless you all.

When you come into the house with a very sick family member, everyone opens your arms and embraces not only the guest but the whole family. We brought our mother to you and you showed us the way to being her home! There is not enough words for the love you showed our family. Thank you.

I have never been more grateful than for all of you there at Abraham House. The last week of my sweet Daddy’s life was made so peaceful and comforting by each and every one of you. You truly are special people! I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate all you did to help me and him. The care is fantastic and the house is really lovely. How fortunate I am to have had the opportunity to know you. I will forever miss my Dad but am comforted knowing he did not suffer.

We were so impressed with the care and compassion showered on Mark’s dad and my father in-law. We have often told others when talking about Abraham House what special people work there. In fact, we’ve compared them to “Angels from Above”. By being so. you allowed us to be family instead of caregivers.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative our family is for the care and companionship shown to my mother and our entire family during a very difficult time. You and your staff provided a wonderful place for us to come and be with Mom during her final days. It meant so much to us to know she would not suffer or be alone.

Thank you for all the concern and compassion given to my father, Henry Zebrowski, while he was staying at the Abraham House. I think he was afforded the dignity and respect, from all of you there, with both great professional and personal efforts. Please know that you made my Dad’s last days and hours there-what should be and what was, a wonderful thing. The kindness also shown to my wife, relatives, and myself will definitely not be forgotten. You have my gratitude regarding the way Henry Stephen Zebrowski was helped, during his passing on to a better place.

Once again, thank you for everything. We cannot express our gratefulness enough. We were lucky and blessed not once but twice to have our dad placed first in November and then our mom in February. We thank God for this (same room, same bed). You are all angels and a true blessing to do what you do. We feel that you were definitely kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate. To not only our parents but also to us. Thankful is the special way we feel because of all of you.
