posted message: I am finishing up some of the readings and will be adding to the discussion on the activity wall shortly. Thank you for your flexibility regarding deadlines. I enjoyed tremendously reading The Death of Ivan Illyich. It seemed so familiar. It echoed so much of my experience working with patients and families while I worked with hospice. It seems that no matter who we are in life, with our vastly different experiences, we can be very much the same at our end. I have known many Ivans.
