In a unique and special ceremony, our patient Jim was honored with FOUR additional family members – who either have or are currently serving in the military; Kevin (Navy), Steven (Army), April (Army), and David (Navy).
It took special coordination with the family, as well as the help of the Red Cross, in order to have Jim’s grandson, David, present. David had been actively serving oversees in the military. It was costly and time consuming, however the family was able to make it happen and Jim was elated. For one special day, Jim had all of his family around him; his two sons, two grandsons, and their families. The look of pride and joy on his face was priceless. Larry, a Heart ‘n Home Volunteer, pinned Jim and his family members, thanking them all for their service. We are grateful their family allowed us to honor this family of Veterans and share in Jim’s special day. It reminds us all of the importance of not taking life for granted and make the best of the moments we have with our families.
Even in small ways, we can make a big difference in our lives and the lives of others.
