  1. What a great picture and proof of the work you do!

    Saw your wonderful picture in The Pioneer Newspaper. Great press!

    On a personal note, I work for Hospice of Southern Illinois and would appreciate getting on your calendar to speak to your members not only about the benefits of Hospice, but also the myths out there and the many resources we bring for the entire family.

    Please consider reaching out, as I’m in the Caseyville, Madison County area daily, and our North Hub is in Bellevile. We are also a 4 star We Honor Veterans organization through the Veterans Administration.

    My cell is easiest – 618.531.9430
    Hope we can work together!
