Moments That Matter: Country Singer Alan Jackson Sends Message Of Hope To Liberty HomeCare and Hospice Patient

Country singer Alan Jackson recently sent a message of hope to a Liberty HomeCare and Hospice patient after learning he had a super fan in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

To hospice patient Dean Ivey, Alan Jackson is more than just a country singer. He said he adopted Jackson as a brother long before he even won his first music award. He said he appreciates Jackson’s faith and family values and relates to him on many levels. He shared all this with Medical Social Worker Donna Brock.

Brock reached out to Jackson’s team and told them all about Mr. Ivey. To her surprise, the team responded within 24 hours. They sent Mr. Ivey a T-shirt, new CDs, a baseball cap, an autographed photo and a heartfelt and sincere letter of appreciation thanking Mr. Ivey for his support and wishing him well.

Mr. Ivey felt overwhelmed by the gift. Through a smile and tears, he said, “You don’t know how much this kind and thoughtful gift means to me.”

When a person is placed in hospice care, it becomes incredibly important to celebrate ‘Moments that Matter’ with loved ones because every moment counts. This was one of those moments and Liberty HomeCare and Hospice is thankful Jackson and his team made it possible.
