National Weather Service Seattle Washington: Wet Work Week Ahead
Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife: One Last Wish
On Tuesday, WDFW helped a dream come true.
Staff in our southwest region got a call Monday from a man who said his mother had entered hospice care and recently returned home. She woke up that morning with just one wish: to go fishing with her kids one more time.
The problem was, she was too ill to make the trip to any public fishing locations to fulfill that wish.
So WDFW brought the fish to her.
We're just grateful to have been a small part of that.
