Lorraine’s wish is to be pampered one final time. Frequently, it’s the little things that seem to lift one’s spirits in a time of crisis.
Always an independent person, Lorraine has recently felt isolated due to her inability to drive anymore because of her health.
Her children mentioned how much she enjoyed getting her hair done, and thought it might lift her spirits. When they discussed the idea with Lorraine, she loved the idea and said, “When you look good, you do feel good.” Lorraine’s oldest son Sean added, “My mother never really took much time for herself, she has always focused on helping my brothers and chasing after her grandkids. I know the opportunity to be pampered will lift her spirits.”
With your gift, you can help lift Lorraine’s spirits.
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.
Flowers for Frances
Frances would like flowers for her room at the Inpatient Center and a haircut to make her feel beautiful.
On any sunny afternoon, Frances could be found in the garden. She enjoyed being outdoors; watching butterflies flit from flower to flower in the springtime and the seasons changing in autumn.
Due to changes in her health, Frances now resides in an Inpatient Center and has been unable to enjoy the sunshine on a regular basis. Her wish is for some flowers to brighten her room and get her hair “done” like she use to do with friends.
