Ms. Green’s Fish Fry

By arhospice on July 15th, 2019 in Blog, Gifts of Kindness

Fishing and family topped the list of Lily’s favorite things in life. For weeks, her social worker at Arkansas Hospice explored ways to give Lily some time fishing next to a creek bank.  When her illness made it impossible for that to happen, they decided to bring family and fish to her.  They would host a good old fashioned fish fry. 

Donations to Gifts of Kindness through Arkansas Hospice Foundation were used to secure the party room at Lily’s favorite restaurant.  Word got out to friends and family to come for a great time honoring a great lady.

On the big day, Lily arrived to the restaurant dressed in a brand new dress and hat.

Over ninety relatives were there to celebrate Lily. Each one presented her with a single red carnation, her favorite flower, along with their loving sentiments and memories. 

Lily ended that day with her arms full of flowers, her belly full of fish, and her heart overflowing with love from her family.

It was a celebration of life that she could treasure and her family could remember for years to come.
