Hospice Stamp [EOL in Art 46]

In 1999, the U.S. Postal Service issued the Hospice Care Commerative Stamp to help raise awareness about hospice.

The stamp was designed by veteran stamp designer Phil Jordan to symbolize life’s journey to its final stage, the stage where Hospice lends its vision for end-of-life care.  The Hospice stamp features a large green field in front and a tree beside a while house, with a large yellow and red butterfly flying above.
