A Wish to Soar!
John Thompson was a U.S. Navy veteran and a former pilot. His friend and former flight instructor, Barry Behnfeldt, had the idea to take John on one last flight. With the assistance of staff from the Defiance Fire Department and CHP Hospice, Thompson enjoyed a final flight with his friend and former instructor.
A Wish to Remember
Brian Stahl was a retired firefighter with 23 years of service to the Van Wert Fire Department. At age 60, he was a hospice patient with colon cancer. As a tribute to the profession to which he dedicated most of his life, Stahl’s wish was to visit New York City and Ground Zero, where so many in the Brotherhood of Firefighters lost their lives.
Picturesque Trip to Connect with Family
Brenda Bundy of Bryan visited the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to see its autumn beauty and connect with her family roots. Bundy’s cousin lives in Mackinaw City and her father once lived in the area and operated a store. During her six-day trip, Bundy and her companions traveled over the famous Mackinac Bridge, enjoyed a visit with her cousin, saw beautiful lighthouses, fed the seagulls, enjoyed a boat tour of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and took a drive through the Michigan Tunnel of Trees to experience the beautiful fall colors. “The maple trees were so pretty,” she said. “It helped me forget about being sick for a little while.”
Cake and a Slice of Chicago
Kim Feehan of Stryker received a terminal diagnosis at age 50. Throughout her healthcare journey, she grew connected to
the staff at Mercy Health – Defiance Hospital and was a big fan of the chocolate cake there. Her wish included a hospital chocolate cake and a trip to Chicago; visiting Millennium Park, Shedd Aquarium, and enjoying authentic Chicago-style hot dogs and pizza.
