Since the time she was a little girl, Molly told her Great-Grandmother, Rose, that when she got married, Rose would be the Matron of Honor in her wedding and Rose happily promised to be there. This promise recently came true with a little help from the U.P. Hospice Foundation’s Make-a-Memory program and the power of technology.

Rose is currently in the care of U.P. Hospice and wasn’t going to be able to make the trip to California to celebrate the big day. When we learned of her Great-Granddaughter’s wedding and the promise Rose had made to her when she was just a little girl, we stepped in to make a memory come true!

With a little help from our Memory Maker’s Team and Rose’s family, we were able to setup a local wedding party for her and her friends while she attended the wedding “virtually” via Skype and participated as the Matron of Honor. Like any wedding, Rose wore a gorgeous lacy dress that had all the final touches of jewelry and was complimented by a stunning bouquet that matched the rest of the wedding party. Through the use of an iPad, Rose was walked down the aisle (which was a beautiful California beach) and participated in the entire wedding ceremony. The celebration continued in Marquette with hors d’oeuvres and sweet treats from Coco’s and a little champagne!
