Something clicked when Mike Hoffman met Dorothy Geske. The two shared a taste for split pea soup, swapping stories and cooking.

"We'd go out for walks, I would cook dinner for her, she made fudge special for me," said Hoffman, 67. "We were just friends really."


Hoffman spent a little over a year visiting with Geske as a St. Luke's Hospice volunteer. It was very rewarding, he said. "We had a wonderful time."
