Marsha knows first-hand the importance of Blue Ridge Hospice. She will never forget the love, compassion and comfort offered to her father in his last days, as well as her mother-in-law at the end of her time with us. Not only did BRH offer care to those who were leaving us, but they offered consolation and passionate comfort to the family. Marsha feels that it is an honor to serve on the board of such an important and giving organization.
