We think the guide turned out great. I took a few along Monday to the Agrace End-of-Life forum at the Alliant Energy Center and they all were gone by the end of the day. One social worker said, "I love this publication. I use it all the time." Thanks for all of your efforts and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you.
