Man finds calling as hospice nurse after wife's death - Baltimore Sun

"Hospice care is about providing comfort at the end of life, and O'Malley knows that what he does helps ease the suffering of his patients and the burdens of their families. It wasn't that long ago that he was on the receiving end of that comfort and support when his wife was in the end stages of cancer. The nurses at Gilchrist Hospice Care's Towson inpatient center not only attended to her physical and emotional needs, they cared for him and helped him prepare for her dying.

He was so impressed and inspired by the experience that he began taking classes to become a nurse two months after his wife died in late 2010.

Five years later, O'Malley is dispensing the same compassionate care to dying patients and their families that he received; easing pains both literal and figurative, transforming death from a dark and frightening experience into a peaceful and sometimes even spiritual one."
