When 28-year-old Chris Lynch entered hospice care with AccentCare he had one dying wish.

“He expressed he wanted to marry his now wife Valerie, right from the get-go, extremely clear,” explained Sabrina Curtis, Community outreach Manager for AccentCare.

With that in mind, Curtis and their hospice team members got to work. Some of the members helped get the marriage license, a photographer donated their time and talents, balloons and cake were bought as well.

“It was a full team effort to bring it together and to not only get them married but to make it feel like a wedding which can be difficult to do when someone is at the end of their life,” stated Curtis.

The family also wanted to create a legacy project, something for them to remember their loved one by.

“They expressed they wanted to do something with fingerprints with everyone who attended the ceremony and the team,” shared Curtis.

Curtis found a fingerprint tree, with everyone doing their fingerprint in green and Lynch and his wife, Valerie’s, in red. Their fingerprints crossed to form a heart.
