Why do you choose to volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
HRRV helped one of my friends at the end of life. I attended a meeting where HRRV gave a talk about hospice and volunteering. I wanted to give back, so I signed up.

What is your favorite volunteer memory?
I met a wonderful patient that I visited each week for some time. We talked about sports, politics and whatever was current in the world. I got to know him and his wife very well, and we all became good friends. It was a really rewarding experience for me.

What has been your favorite vacation?
My wife and I took a trip to Norway a couple years ago.
