By your side, our family caring for your family.


Brenda VanHorn recently held a Thirty-One Bag Party with a twist. Brenda's twist was offering an opportunity for individuals to sponsor a Thirty-One Bag. For $25 friends and guests could sponsor a bag that would be donated to Hospice of the Rock River Valley. Her twist was a huge success and last week she was able to donate 25 bags to HRRV. Thank you Brenda for your support and great idea and to all who helped sponsor a bag for Hospice !
