Paula shares how the pajama party for her daughter when she was in hospice started and how they honored her memory this year.
It wasn’t really the family. Well, it was my other daughter, but she had all her friends there, several of them, and they were talking, whatever, and she says, you know, “I am here in pajamas and you’re all dressed.” So one of them said, “Well, we can come in our pajamas.” And that’s how the idea of the pajama party got started, and they had it like a week after she had been admitted to hospice because we didn’t know what was going to happen.
And you saw that picture. They just all came in pajamas, and they brought all kinds of food, and they got her out of bed into that Geri chair where she hadn’t got out of bed before. And that was no easy task because by that time, her legs were so swollen and she was so weak and in pain, but they did it, and she looked great and she had a good time. So this year, one of the ladies who was part of that decided they were going to have a party, and we had a pajama party at her house in Sherry’s memory, and it was, we all brought food, and it was an upbeat party. It wasn’t, we’re not sitting around and bemoaning what’s going on. We were having to go into talk about her, and we’re going over here for a reason and we’re going to have a nice time, and that’s what happened.
