HOSPICE RESIDENT GETS HOLIDAY SURPRISE WITH HORSEPOWER
DECEMBER 25, 2015
Thomas Yarnell lives at the Villages at Jackson Creek assisted living community in Independence, Mo., where he is receiving hospice care from Caris Healthcare.
Recently, Yarnell said he had a certain wish he has had his entire life: he wanted to be up close to a race car, listen to the engine and touch it.
So, with the help of Lakeside Speedway general manager Pete Howey, owner Don Marrs and race track prep guru Jim "Bunny" Whisler, a full-blown USRA Modified driven by Terry Bruner was delivered to the Villages at Jackson Creek and Yarnell got the surprise of a lifetime.
Joined by his son, Ralph, along with several nurses and facility administrator Kelly Tennison, Yarnell got his chance.
I think we have a new race fan!
