Fishing and family topped the list of Lily’s favorite things in life. For weeks, her social worker at Arkansas Hospice explored ways to give Lily some time fishing next to a creek bank. When her illness made it impossible for that to happen, they decided to bring family and fish to her. They would host a good old fashioned fish fry.
Donations to Gifts of Kindness through Arkansas Hospice Foundation were used to secure the party room at Lily’s favorite restaurant. Word got out to friends and family to come for a great time honoring a great lady.
On the big day, Lily arrived to the restaurant dressed in a brand new dress and hat.
Over ninety relatives were there to celebrate Lily. Each one presented her with a single red carnation, her favorite flower, along with their loving sentiments and memories.
Lily ended that day with her arms full of flowers, her belly full of fish, and her heart overflowing with love from her family.
It was a celebration of life that she could treasure and her family could remember for years to come.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
