Nancy Sears is a wife, mother, business person and angel.  She learned the power of the human touch more than thirty years ago when she was caring for a friend dying of AIDS.  Since then, she has spent a lifetime giving her time away to those in need of a compassionate touch.  Much of Nancy's volunteering today is done through Compassionate Care Hospice.

Joining Nancy on the show today, Dave Savage is passionate about helping families communicate and memorialize their stories for future generations.  Like Nancy, Dave is a volunteer with Compassionate Care Hospice.  After spending many years in business, Dave became very interested in helping families "record their roots."  Check out his work at

Michael Mullink has also dedicated his life and career to helping people.  Trained as a minister and chaplain, Michael spent most of the last six years as a chaplain for Compassionate Care Hospice.  He recently took on the role of Director of Volunteer Services.  Now he gets to coordinate the services of his "11th hour angels."  He notes that Compassionate Care Hospice has nearly as many volunteers as it does paid employees.  He is thrilled to be involved with such a selfless and committed group of individuals!  For more information about Compassionate Care Hospice, or to contact any one of our guests today, email Michael at, or call M inhale directly at (770) 220-2723.

We want to thank Griswold Home Care for sponsoring today’s show.  Griswold Home Care has been a preferred provider of high quality, affordable in-home senior care in Atlanta for 20 years.
