West’s Final Salute
With your donation, you’ll be granting West’s wish for replacement medals from his time in the Army.
West, a proud World War II Veteran, served our country with honor and received several medals recognizing his bravery and service. Over many years, West lost track of many medals and most of the uniform he wore with pride. Now as he enters the final chapter of his life, West wishes to recapture some of his memories by once again holding his medals. His wish is to receive replacement medals and a display case so that he can share his glory days with family and friends. West will pass down this memorabilia to his young grandsons as a way to help remember and honor “The Greatest Generation.”
Nathaniel’s Naval Memories
Nathaniel wishes for some small items that remind him of his days proudly serving our country aboard the USS Neosho.
Memories create such vivid pictures in our minds and can take us back to times. For Nathaniel, those memories are of a young man proudly serving our country aboard the USS Neosho. At 80 years old, Nathaniel thinks often of his ship and the brave men who he served alongside. Pictures, names, sounds and smells bring memories flooding back, and a smile to Nathaniel’s face. Nathaniel’s wish is simple. He has requested a copy of the book The Ship that Wouldn’t Die: The Saga of the USS Neosho by Don Keith, along with a U.S. Navy hat and framed photograph of the USS Neosho.
Pearlie wishes to have a photo of her home in Birmingham, since she is unable to travel there.
There really is no place like home. Pearlie worked for many years as a dietician at the Children’s Hospital to save and purchase her home in Birmingham. She lived there for more than fifty years before her health condition made it necessary to move in with her sister, Miss Fossy.
Pearlie’s wish is to see her home in Birmingham one final time, but since she is unable to travel, the next best thing is a large photo of home sweet home.
With the help of a Wish Grantor like you, Pearlie can see her beloved home again.
Victoria’s wish is simply a new chair.
Sometimes it’s the most simple things that matter. To Victoria, what matters most is being surrounded by her grandchildren when they visit her home. Due to her illness, Victoria is unable to comfortably and safely move around her home, often times having to stay in her room. When given the chance to have one final wish, she didn’t hesitate to request a recliner so that she can comfortably and safely stay in her living room and be surrounded by the laughter and love of her family. For Victoria, a chair will become the heart of her home.
