Dying Man's Wish to See New 'Star Wars' Movie Coming True
Dying Military Veteran gets his final wish:
To watch the new Star Wars movie in the theater.
This is Ron Villemaire.
He’s 69 years old and doesn’t have much time left.
He’s never missed a Star Wars movie and has read 250 books about Star Wars.
His daughter Elizabeth Ngo was determined to find a way to get him from hospice to the movie theater in time.
It all started with this simple tweet:
“Anyone know how I can help my dad?
He’s dying of cancer.
He’s a veteran of the Vietnam war.
I want him to see the @starwars the last Jedi before he dies and there is no #makeawish stuff for adults.
Anyone know what I can do?
We don’t know how long he has.”
This is where the story gets good.
The response was overwhelming.
Everyone came together and set it up.
And on the set day Darth Vader came into his room and said:
“Ron Villemaire you have been summoned by the Emperor.”
Then the Bedford, New Hampshire Fire Department along with the New Boston and Epping Departments all took over and took him to the theatre that had been set up to accommodate his hospital bed.
Elizabeth Ngo said:
“I never would’ve believed it would’ve turned out like this.
I mean this is incredible.”
Her father was overcome with emotion,
He told WMUR TV:
“I hope God will bless each and everyone of them just the way I feel blessed right now. He’s definitely with me right now.
It’s just unbelievable al these people are here.
Thank God for Star Wars fans.”
And we can’t forget about the movie itself.
Ron said it was outstanding:
“This is my favorite movie so far.
The action in this movie was unbelievable.
And the doors that it opens for what can happen in the future… was so amazing.
I give it 5 stars all the way.”
I’m so happy that Ron got the see the movie.
And I’m so proud of everyone who helped make it happen.
