Sunsets are just little glimpses of the golden streets of Heaven…Unknown

Michael (51) dreamed of sitting on the beach, listening to the roar of the ocean while watching the sun slowly set below the horizon.  When his doctors told him it was time to consider hospice, he knew the number of sunsets he would see were numbered.  Although he was too ill to travel from Arkansas to the ocean, his social worker with Arkansas Hospice wanted to make a magical sunset experience happen for him.

MIchael’s social worker contacted the Arkansas Hospice Foundation, who arranged to provide Michael and a friend the opportunity to enjoy dinner and a sunset aboard the Belle of Hot Springs.  From the deck of the historic riverboat on a crisp fall day, Michael watched the sky turn beautiful hues of orange, gold and fiery pinks before setting across the water.  In thanking the donors for the experience, Michael said, “the weather was perfect” that fall day.
