She said that Hos- pice likes to say that volunteers are the heart of the organization, but that she doesn't feel that says enough. '~Death i's just a fact," Gageby added. "Everybody has to dies sometime, I just make them a ht- tle more comfortable." Hutton and Gageby both said they feel like their patients are their family-Hutton said she spends more time with them than with some of her own fam- ily. The best part is meeting and sharing with new people, accord- ing to her. "[I enjoy] being invited into their home at this time in their lives and sharing this part of life with them," she said, adding that she felt the experience was a spiritual one. "Every patient has their own special something that you can share." Although the patients pass on, Hutton said she still keeps in touch with some of the fami- hes she's worked with. The expe- rience has changed how she feels about her own family, as well. ~I realize how precious life is and how short it is, and to treasure ev- ery moment," Hutton said.
