Like everyone, Evelyn’s life has been filled with ups and downs. She’s enjoyed beautiful joyful times and had experienced some sorrows. But no matter what, she’s been deeply rooted in her faith.
When Makenzie from Hillcrest Hospice nominated Evelyn to receive a Dream, she knew she wanted to do something special for this spunky and funny lady. After discussing multiple options, Evelyn decided it would be wonderful to hear some of her favorite Christian music songs played live.
The morning of her Dream was filled with pampering—a new haircut, painted nails, and a beautiful outfit from Von Maur—all made Evelyn feel great to start off her Dream Day. After taking a few pictures, she made her way down the hall to listen to the musician.
John from MerryMakers was equipped with a guitar and a great voice. His gentle presence and funny jokes made Evelyn feel comfortable and special. He shared some stories and began to sing. Her favorites included songs by Mercy Me and, of course, Amazing Grace. She sang along to a few, softly teared up at some, and smiled through all. His voice connected to her heart and she was grateful.
Other residents joined in on Evelyn’s Dream, celebrating her and enjoying the music. They snacked on sweet cupcakes and sang along to the melodies they loved and knew so well. She was surrounded by friends who support and care for her.
Thank you to Hillcrest Hospice, Marie from Plattsmouth Care, MerryMakers, and Tammy for making this Dream so special for Evelyn.
