This is one dying woman’s final wish


A woman in hospice care had a dying wish fulfilled last month— one last mocha milkshake from a popular Cleveland restaurant.

The Ohio native, Emily Pomeranz, 51, was being taken care for in Virginia, thus making the milkshake wish difficult to accomplish. But with help from a friend in Virginia and the longtime owner of Tommy’s in Cleveland Heights, the shake arrived four days before she passed away of pancreatic cancer.

A photo of Pomeranz holding the shake was posted to Facebook, her milkshake story has been shared

In order to made it work, restaurant owner Tommy Fello packed the shake in dry ice and shipped it overnight. The frosty drink made a 375-mile trip.

Fello says the photo of Pomeranz proves giving is better than receiving.
