Music For Gene
Gene, a life-long musician, wished to hear the music he loves one final time.
Gene was a dedicated musician for many years, playing at his church and in his band: The Gospel Quartet. His wish was to hear the music he loved most, southern gospel, one last time. One of our amazing Wish Partners and local performing artist, Beverly Lincke, was overjoyed at the opportunity to perform for Gene and sang a medley of well-loved gospel hymns.
Beverly’s voice carried throughout the Inpatient Center, and a group of families gathered around once she started singing. Gene’s social worker, Darleen, said he would raise his eyebrows and squeeze her hand when Beverly sang a high note.
Wilson’s Birthday Celebration
Wilson wishes to celebrate his birthday with a BBQ.
When Wilson throws a birthday party, he knows exactly what he wants. He’s wishing to celebrate with his entire family feasting on smoked Boston Butt, potato salad, coleslaw, beans, broccoli salad, rolls – and, of course, cake and ice cream. (Anything else, Wilson?) We’re happy to help … and hopeful you’ll help us give Wilson one more wonderful birthday. When it comes time to blow out the candles, we know he’ll wish the party would never end.
Robert’s Low Country Boil
Robert longs for a good old-fashioned low country boil.
Robert just loves a party – especially when the menu includes a low country boil. As a celebration of his life, Robert’s wishing for one more backyard meal. He has asked for savory shrimp and crawfish, as well as hamburgers and hot dogs in the sunshine. Please help us give Robert and his friends and family a festive feast they’ll never forget. You grant the wish … we’ll do the cooking.
Harry’s Outdoor Paradise
Harry loves to be outside, but he needs a shady spot to sit.
Harry has always enjoyed the outdoors – he’d rather not be cooped up in a cozy bed. But he can’t sit in the hot sun. Harry needs a shady place to get his breath of fresh air. He doesn’t have a porch where he lives, so Harry wishes for a new pop-up canopy tent and folding chairs where he can spend time with his family. Together, we can help Harry make the most of his final days.
