After 38 years, Nehemiah reconnected with his daughter, Syreeta. Nehemiah’s Endless Journey Hospice social worker, Taylor, did a little detective work in November to reconnect the father and daughter.
Syreeta didn’t know where he lived or if he was still alive. Soon after finding out her father was still alive and residing at Florence Home in Omaha, NE in Endless Journey Hospice’s care, Syreeta traveled from Tennessee to meet her father for the first time. After so many years, there was so much catching up to do, Syreeta’s short visit flew by.
Taylor had a thought, maybe Dreamweaver Foundation could fulfill Nehemiah’s dream of having his daughter with him for Christmas. After a couple weeks of planning, Nehemiah’s dream came true. Syreeta was able to visit a couple days after Christmas and as a surprise, Dreamweaver Foundation also flew in Nehemiah’s sister, Dorothy, from Alabama. It had been nearly 15 years since they have been together.
One of Nehemiah’s favorite things is music. We planned a special outing with Nehemiah and his family at the Holland Center to watch Jim Brickman’s A Joyful Christmas Holiday Event. Nehemiah looked dashingly handsome in his new slacks, dress shirt and stylish fedora hat from Von Maur.
Syreeta told us, “I just wanted to stop and thank you and Dreamweaver Foundation for the amazing experience with my dad and aunt. He thoroughly enjoyed the show and was all smiles! You and the organization will forever be in my heart and prayers. Continue doing the great work you do! Blessings!”
Thank you Florence Home, Endless Journey Hospice, Camelot Transportation, Travel and Transport and Von Maur for partnering with us to fulfill Nehemiah’s Dream.
