This week we’ve partnered with Hospice Austin and StoryCorps to hear stories of loss and grieving from people who have been involved with hospice care at the end of life.

Today, we hear from Gretchen Baker – a volunteer with Hospice Austin.

Earlier in her life, Gretchen lost her son to SIDS and later lost her daughter at a young age. A year after her husband passed away at Hospice Austin’s Christopher House, she returned as a volunteer to help others.
