Location: Village at Valley View, 1071 W Jackson Rd, Ashland

Ashland At Home’s members and volunteers will have an opportunity to join him for a 2-session program concerning “The Key End-Of-Life Issues” and “We Are Made of Stories”. A quote from Fred helps to explain his journey in dealing with end-of-life issues. “I was afraid of dying, so I became a hospice chaplain. I figured if I hung around with Death, made friends with him---at a safe distance---I would get used to him and he wouldn’t be so scary. So, for the past 12 years, I have had the privilege to journey with more than two thousand folks who have gone on to the other side.”
