90th Birthday Dream Come True!
September 25, 2016
Dear Friends, I just wanted to reach out to the wonderful people in this country. I'm asking for your help with a dream I want to make come true for my Mother. My Mom will be 90 years old on January 25, 2017. How awesome is that! When you reach the age of 90 you're going to go thru a lot of stuff. May I share some things my Mom has gone thru. She lost her 1st first born child in 1968. Her daughter was murdered at age 21. She nursed and care for her ailing Father who died at age 88. She cared for her husband of over 25 years until his death. She assisted and helped rehabilitate my brother who almost lost his leg in a severe motorcycle accident. And on January 11th 2016 she lost her second child. He struggled and battled with lung cancer and died at age 65. I ask my Mother what she would want beyond her wildest dreams for her 90th birthday? I ask her what has she always wanted to do in her life and never had the opportunity to do? She looked at me and smiled and said with she soft voice. " I've always wanted to go to Jamaica"! She said how beautiful it was and how she has always wanted to go there! She has seen it several times on the travel channel. I was blown away. Without even thinking I blurted out I was going to make it happen! She just laughed!.. I am asking for your monetary help in making this dream of my Mom's come true. Her birthday is January 25th, the first year of the loss of her beloved son is in January. I would love to make the pain that I know she is going to feel at that time, with the thought of knowing she was about to go on a trip of a lifetime coming true? It just might ease some of that pain she will feeling when that anniversary omes. Nothing is worst than the pain of a Mother losing her child. No matter what age. I thank you for your compassion and love! Thanks so much !
