Merrill Hale is one of the Husker’s BIGGEST fans! Merrill originally wanted to attend a Nebraska Cornhusker football game at Memorial Stadium, however, the COVID-19 pandemic postponed his Dream time and time again. Not wanting to wait any longer, Merrill decided to change his Dream to focus on his family.

Merrill’s new Dream was to have family pictures taken and gather everyone around the table for a meal. In true Nebraska fashion, Merrill decided to share his love for prime rib with his family, this is the beef state after all!

Merrill arrived at his Dream in style, sporting his best Husker gear for the family pictures! Merrill and his family were pleased to be taking updated family pictures, capturing the love shared between them all, even while basking in the Nebraska heat. 

Following the family pictures, Johnny’s Steakhouse provided Merrill and his family with a delicious dinner they will never forget!  Merrill shared his enjoyment of his special meal, raving that his prime rib was “fantastic” and “they know how to cut prime rib.” Listening to him describe his prime rib and onion rings will have your mouth watering!

Of course, the Dreamweaver team didn’t forget about Merrill’s love for the Huskers and made sure to incorporate a Husker theme to the day.  A Go Big Red finale came from our friends at Scheels, who gifted Merrill with a Husker tumbler and a Husker blanket!

Merrill’s favorite part of the dream?  Simply being together with his family once again. Merrill described his Dream as “great in all aspects” and noted the Dream was “worth the wait.” Merrill is currently working on rearranging his Husker decorations to make room for his new family pictures that he is “not too patiently waiting for” and can’t wait to display!
