Horace H., 90, Bakersville, NC

Horace Hoilman, 90, a resident of Bakersville, North Carolina, recently had his simple wish for a lift chair granted. Horace lives alone and is housebound. His life centers around his chair where he frequently spend the night because it's so difficult for him to stand up from his old chair. He was nominated by his hospice worker who wrote that his old chair had no more cushion left in it and he was literally sitting on the wooden frame. Horace served in both the Navy and the Army. He was actually on board a naval ship that was patrolling the waters surrounding Japan when the atomic bombs were dropped during WWII. We were so glad to be able to grant this simple wish for such a deserving man. This will make such a difference in his quality of life.
