PC Moment: Bestselling author and syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson spoke on family, life and death and read from her memoir Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things: A Memoir of Loving, Loss and Coming Home. She emphasized that ultimately most families will seek the aid of hospice when losing a loved one.
The luncheon was chaired by Elizabeth and Anthony DeLuca, who have strong ties to Houston Hospice where their daughter was served before passing away two years ago. The couple shared their story emphasizing how important Hospice is to families, particularly those dealing with the death of a child.
