The D-Word

“I TOOK HIS BODY UP TO THE MORGUE MYSELF.”

Moving through his high school hallways, Mark recounts the first time he entered the hospice unit at age 18 - “You have to leave yourself at the door...you become an empty vessel.” He meets a terminally ill man with a broken voice who will tell him things about life no text book could ever write.
