Terry Meyer has written a book on the history of Mesilla Valley Hospice, including the strong community that has contributed to our mission. Pick up a copy today: Last week, long-time Mesilla Valley Hospice volunteer Pat Marshall was honored with the Molina Healthcare Community Champion Award, in recognition of her many years of community service.
Below is a recap of the evening, written by our volunteer coordinator, Catharine Walkinshaw. We're so excited to introduce a new video to you that really shows what Mesilla Valley Hospice is all about. More than a piece of handcrafted artwork. More than a collection of red, white and blue cotton. More than the hours and thousands of stitches that have gone into its creation. Kathy Olson, program coordinator with La Posada, says they strive to honor the life experiences of the veterans under their care.
When a veteran passes away their body is draped in something very special. Then they would stand at attention on either side of the hall as the draped body is taken away from the building for the last time. Should we get a burial flag? Should we use a quilt? When we have a veteran either admitted to La Posada or into our home care we do a pinning ceremony where we give them one of these pins as a way to say thank you for your service, we honor you and we welcome you into the Mesilla Valley Hospice family.
Hospice also has a welcome card for those who are admitted to La Posada and a door clip with a small American flag in it. This denotes that there is an honored veteran in that room and encourages staff to go in and thank them for their service. I want to sit at the computer and write my stories of my time there. And all the rulers and the templates! She says it has warmed her heart when family members have asked for specific care directions for the quilt she has lovingly crafted for them.

Vietnam Veteran Charles Albridge, Jr. He served as sharpshooter in the Army and then as a Navy gunner. He also earned a masters in English at Very patient and supportive.
I think about it, and I think over the years my quilting has come to mean a lot for other people too. Thank goodness he came home. We had a very successful day on Tuesday: The highlight however was Congressman Pearce's office.
We were scheduled to see a staffer but while we were waiting he came out of his office to say hello to a former staffer.
