Bobby’s wish is to travel to Charleston, South Carolina and visit the USS Yorktown on which he was stationed during his service in the United States Navy.
As a young man, Bobby served in the United States Navy as an underwater demolition expert. His service took him aboard the USS Yorktown and around the globe.
Bobby has such fond memories of his time aboard “The Fighting Lady” and the lifelong friendships he forged with others serving at his side. He says he loved his days on the ship and that it was such an important part of his life.
Bobby wishes to return one final time and give thanks to the ship that provided him with so many memories. As an added bonus, Charleston is the city where Bobby and his wife, Annette took their first major trip as a young couple.
Barry’s Beach Visit
Barry’s wish is to see the ocean one time during his life.
After watching The Weather Channel and seeing the warm southern climate, Barry moved from Chicago to Mobile, Alabama one year ago. Growing up in the Midwest, Barry has never seen the beach and only dreamed of putting his toes in the cool sand and water. Barry wishes to end his special day by taking a boat ride on Mobile Bay and feeling the Gulf winds blow across his face.

Nichole’s wish is a simple one, to have her nails done one last time.
Oftentimes, it’s the little things that seem to lift one’s spirits the most when in a time of crisis.
As Nichole’s health has declined, she had a simple request that she shared with her daughter and caregiver- to get a manicure and pedicure. “Going to the salon has been the highlight of mom’s week for years. She says having a fresh coat of polish makes her feel like herself again. Mom loves to gab with all the other ladies about the latest happenings- its a social event for her,”said Amy, Nichole’s daughter.
Unfortunately, because of her condition, Nichole has been unable to physically go to a nail salon. Nichole’s wish is to have the salon come to her at the Covenant inpatient center.
