The limo arrived at Helen’s house, a place she and her family had called home for decades. After moving to Omaha in the ’70s, Helen settled into the home that would be a gathering place for many other family members and neighborhood friends. Helen used to sit on her front porch and watch the school children walk home from across the street. She was well known and well-loved.
When Makenzie from Hillcrest Hospice nominated Helen, she shared that all Helen wanted to do was to have a day out with her daughter and granddaughter. They loved going out and shopping or running errands, but Helen’s health had limited how often they got to go together. But when Dreamweaver interviewed Helen and told her that we could make a Dream Day happen, she said she promised to have the energy to make it a wonderful day with her girls.
After a limo ride to Von Maur, Helen and her girls were greeted by Dreamweaver Staff and volunteer, Ellie. The group enjoyed finding pieces that Helen found, “comfortable and cute.” They strolled the first floor, but the third floor ended up being her favorite. Here she found new pajamas, fuzzy slippers, and clothes that would keep her warm and cozy.
Following their shopping trip, the three girls hopped back in the limo for a glamourous ride to dinner. They pulled up to the front doors of Anthony’s Steakhouse and were greeted with warm smells of delicious steak and potatoes. The girls chose their favorite items on the menu and enjoyed every bite!
The shopping trip and dinner were special, but what was most important to Helen was having a day out with her girls. The three women made memories and shared laughs they would never forget.
Thank you to VIP Limo, Anthony’s Steakhouse and Von Maur for making Helen’s Dream a reality!
