Campus: Wellbrooke of Crawfordsville, IN
When Life Enrichment Assistant Jessica T. met resident Margaret “Frances” S., they became fast friends. Over the time they spent together at Wellbrooke of Crawfordsville, the two grew to be more like family, sharing with each other memories, hopes, and dreams. When Jessica told Margaret that she had recently gotten engaged, Margaret shared her own wedding story–she had been married to her husband Merle in a small ceremony in their preacher’s home. Even though she cherished this memory, Margaret expressed that she had always dreamed of what it would have been like to have a large wedding. Jessica was touched and immediately knew in her heart that her wedding day would not be complete without Margaret. She approached Margaret, along with her family, and asked if she would be willing to be her Maid of Honor. Margaret said yes, and the two spent Jessica’s big day together. As Jessica recited her vows to her future husband, Margaret was at her side, holding a beautiful bouquet and beaming. Anyone who saw either woman that day could tell that both of their dreams had come true.
