The atmosphere was filled with kindness and laughter.
Dorothy's Memoir Dream
Dorothy's Dream was to publish her memoir. Her Hospice of the Valley social worker, Clara Komar, combed through 120 pages of handwritten notes with DreamCatchers' Nicole Jones of Mountain View High and Jayden Orr of Grand Canyon University and turned it into a book. The cover: Dorothy’s own painting! “My great-grandchildren don't know me, but they'll be able to read my memoir when they're older," the 99-year-old Dreamer said with a big smile on her face!
Irby's Hot Air Balloon Dream
Irby had been Dreaming of flying in a hot air balloon for a while, but her medical issues have not allowed her to do so. However, in early January Irby was able to experience her long awaited Dream with the help of the Red Mountain High School DreamCatchers. Irby and her daughter got up at sunrise to fly in the balloon. The view was beautiful and the experience will be a forever memory for the both of them.
