Life Journals: We All Have a Story

life journal delivery

"I'm just an ordinary man," John Dolan said when his Life Journal arrived. The truth is that we all have a story to tell.

In fact, we've found that most people want three things at the end of life:

  • To be remembered
  • To pass down their life experiences and beliefs
  • To know that their life mattered

Our Life Journals are part of a unique program that honors these wishes by capturing patient stories and photos into a beautiful hardback book for them and their families.


Crossroads Hospice Volunteer Teresa Schneider worked with John to complete his Life Journal. She recently delivered the completed book to John and his family. A full time employee at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO, Teresa volunteers her time to the Crossroads Hospice Life Journal program in our Lenexa, KS location.

John's family was blown away by the book. "The Life Journal is such an awesome way of honoring your loved ones," says Carolyn Dolan"It allows your loved one to recall precious memories of the past - joyful times with family and friends. It's a special gift that we will cherish for our lifetime."
