Wishes come in countless shapes and sizes. For Vacaville’s Bill Mize, his involved a fast track, a speedometer topping out at 100 mph-plus and a cheerful driver, colorfully festooned in racing gear. And, thanks to some local “dream makers,” his came true.
The terminally ill former longshoreman became NorthBay Hospice’s first recipient of Dream of a Lifetime on Tuesday. The program is one of only a handful of wish-granting projects in the nation that have no age restrictions. It is designed to offer the patient joy, contentment and a sense of completion near the end of their lives.
