When 87-year-old Dorothy “Dot” L. met her first grandchild as she came into the world 32 years ago, she fell in love and has felt that way ever since. Renee has been a great source of pride for Dot for all of her years, becoming a regional manager of 7 banks in Texas and buying her own home.
Dot worked hard as an RN for more than 40 years. She worked all over the country because her husband was in the Air Force and he worked for a company that required them to move often. When not moving or working, Dot volunteered for her church, St. Mary’s, and provided meals to bereaved people, the families of sick people and funeral receptions.
Dot’s sense of pride in her granddaughter was enhanced even more when she received the exciting news that Renee was getting married to her husband, Jeremy on March 15th, 2013 at the beautiful and renowned Hotel Galvez in Galveston, TX. Due to vision and health issues, Dot couldn’t drive herself to the wedding and didn’t want to bother her loving family to drive her on such a big day.
Wish of a Lifetime and Brookdale sent Dot in style in a sedan to the wedding and provided her with a stay at this “Queen of the Gulf” Hotel and Spa after the wedding. Dot was able to witness her star granddaughter appear in her beautiful wedding along with family and friends. Dot said, “It was just really, really wonderful. Jeremy’s family is musical and the best man sang a love song for the couple, it was just beautiful. I hope this program will continue because it was one of the highlights of my life.” Best wishes to Renee and Jeremy for the future, may they have a marriage like Dot’s–one that lasted 65 wonderful years.
