Wish Stories - Dreams To Realities

Yesterdays Dreams Are Todays Reality For Tomorrows Memories.

Dreams to Memories was formed to assist a terminally ill young-parent with children under the age of 15, and living in the same home, with the opportunity to have a family last wish experience. Although the recipient is an adult, these dreams directly involve the children through a parent’s last wish to create a memory for their loved ones.

The following section is some of the wish stories that we have helped to become loving memories.

Indeed, it helps people live the fulest, the best they can with a life-limiting illness. She is pictured with husband Kevin and daughter Kristy.
