Louise Hudson from Smithfield, North Carolina
Sunshine On My Shoulders

Louise Hudson

When the team at Pruitt Hospice of Smithfield, N.C. met Mrs. Louise Hudson, we knew we were in the presence of a very special lady. 93 years young, dealing with multiple health concerns, and praising her Lord for blessing her life. Mrs. Hudson has lost the ability to live alone, but has not lost her love for life. She lives with her daughter and son in law in Princeton, N.C. When asked what thing she misses most, she stated that she would love to be able to go outside and enjoy the sunshine on her face. Mrs. Hudson is blind, but still longs to enjoy nature. She is no longer able to use the stairs at her daughter’s home. Mrs. Hudson also stated she missed going to Church, and would love to be able to go back and fellowship with her friends. Thanks to the inspiration provided by Pruitt’s Second Wind Dreams project, the idea for a wheelchair ramp to assist Mrs. Hudson with enjoying the beautiful North Carolina spring season was presented to our planning group.  The idea was approved and contact was made with our local Home Depot, which in turn provided both materials and volunteers to build the ramp. The ramp was complete within two weeks from conception, and Mrs. Hudson could not be happier.
