Nursing Home Fulfills Women's Lifelong Dream


You're never too old to try something new as two Texas women recently learned.

At 63 and 93 years old, Anna Heath and Ann Doran lived their whole lives with their feet on the ground. That changed recently when the elderly ladies took their first flight.

"I never thought at my age I'd be doing something like this," Heath said.

Heath and Doran live at Grace Care Center. The nursing home has a program called "Grace Filled Dreams." It's designed to fulfill lifelong dreams of residents of the nursing home.

"This is just something to make it a little special for them, to let them be the star of the show," Jeffery Fatheree, executive director of the home, said.

"I've flown many, many hours and I think this is the most rewarding flight I've ever taken," Quincy Martindale, the pilot of the 45-minute flight, said.

The two women were all smiles when they landed. They both said they would gladly take another flight if ever given the opportunity.
