Ralph is very hard of hearing and seeing. He is on oxygen 24 hours a day. Through all of his difficulties, he still remains a sweetheart. Ralph would love to fly one more time. We have found a pilot of small planes that is willing to take Ralph up in the clouds. The pilot will pay for 1/2 of the cost to rent the plane. Thank you in advance for helping Ralph's dream come true!!!!
What a fun, Second Wind Dream granted to Ralph Goecke!! Ralph thought his chances of flying again were over. Little did he know, his dream was going to become reality. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening for Ralph to take to the skies. It was 65 degrees and sunny, and our pilot, Dane Harding met us at Springfield Airport at 6:00 Wednesday, April 12 to help make Ralph's dream come true.
Ralph's son Raymond and his daughter-in-law, Mary helped get Ralph on board. We had a smooth take off and flew over Huber Heights, Springfield, North Hampton and Young's Dairy. Then Dane ended Ralph's flight with a smooth landing. Congratulations, Ralph, dreams can come true.
