    This is a special recognition awarded to volunteers who exemplify the ongoing quality of services at Hospice of Southern Illinois, give countless hours to patients and staff, and dedicate their heart to the mission: to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. 
    “Actions speak louder than words,” is a famous quote that describes these “shooting stars” of the Hospice organization. Thank you to the volunteers who come together, shine bright and go above and beyond to support Hospice of Southern Illinois.
