In a stage of life that is usually devalued, these stories from the nursing home remind us that all life is sacred and every moment is a gift. In Grace at the Finish Line, the writer has found a way to keep the memories of her friends alive by sharing their stories-stories of compassion, struggle, grace, and magic in the mundane. Kathy C. Guerry's nursing career spans over three decades in varied specialties, including geriatrics. She is also active in women's ministries as a speaker, teacher, mentor, and writer. She has published devotional articles and special interest columns in various magazines and newspapers. As a native of the deep South, her often humorous writing has a decidedly rural flavor built on a foundation of faith. Kathy and her husband are enjoying life on their small farm in South Carolina.
