“Dear Metro Team:
I don't have the words to convey my gratitude for the very special "beach outing" you made possible for my daughter, Tami and me last evening. Although I was able to take Tami to the beach during the early stages of her illness, it was impossible to do so after she became bed-ridden. With her move into the Hospice Program, I knew there was limited time remaining and didn't have much hope that it was possible. When Lindsey and Amy came to the nursing home to pick up a resident for transport for a medical test, Tami and I were sitting on the front porch. Lindsey said "Great day for the beach isn't it?" Tami responded "Mom, I want to go to the beach!" After a brief silence, Lindsey said "We can make this happen. Call me." I called and last night was the reality of our efforts. Today, Tami can't stop talking about her time at the beach. I developed the pictures and pasted them on Tami's wall for her to have in view from her bed. I am also attaching a set of photos for all of you who engineered this event and shared this special time with us. I will never forget Monday evening, Sept. 13 at the beach with Tami, Lindsey, Amy, and a few other friends, for the rest of my life. May you and your team be blessed with the joy, love, and peace you share so generously with others. My deepest thanks."
