Director Statement

I was in the room with my grandfather when he passed at home.  Hospice had been a wonderful support and we knew what was happening.  I remember the family receiving literature from either hospice or the doctors discussing the stages of death.  In the literature, it said that the last sense we lose while we are dying is thought to be our hearing.  My grandmother, who I called "Memaw", told my grandfather the night he passed that it was ok for him to go.  Their anniversary and his birthday were coming up the following day, however, Memaw told grandfather he did not have to stay for that.  This has stuck with me for all of these years.  "It's OK" gives one concept of the actual instance of death.  It is a celebration of a person's life.
