Elise Richard, 79

Elise is a strong, spiritual woman with a big heart. Her wish was to meet Sammy, a well-known horse in Nova Scotia! She recently experienced tragic hardships, and expressed that meeting Sammy is just what she needs now in this moment in time to help her heal and move on. And that it did! Now Elise has a new four legged friend, and an open invitation to come back and visit Sammy!

Francis Warner, 83

Francis Warner has always dreamed of driving in a King transport truck; a wish she always wanted but never thought would be possible, until now, thanks to King Freight Lines. "I hope my mom was watching from above", Francis said, coining this as "the best experience of her life!"

Barbara Weatherbie, 93

Barbara Weatherbie, 93, has always been a lover of nature and has always enjoyed and cared for the beauty of the world around her. Barbara's wish for many years has been to admire the Marshy Hope area and all of its beauty from the sky. Viewing the beautiful, lush colours of the fall leaves was something she had only ever dreamed of, until now, thanks to Vision Air Services Inc.

Jacob Bondt, 72

It meant the world to Jacob to have his lifelong dream of flying in a helicopter come true. Quoted from Jacob "...this experience gives seniors more energy and a willingness to live and not feel that they are forgotten."

Brenda Reid, 72

Both of Brenda's sisters have lived far enough away from her that time spent together over the years has been few and far between. With all sisters spread throughout the province of Nova Scotia, and never being able to experience a trip together, Brenda's wish has always been to have the three of them reconnect for a weekend away together.
