Carl Zickefoose arrives at the American Legion in New Egypt, N.J. on Aug. 3, 2014. Ethel would like to have the opportunity to see the house she shared with Carl for so many years one last time. She wants to venture out on a Sunday, have a nice breakfast, and take a trip down memory lane - stopping at her house and at the General Doyle Military Cemetary where both she and Carl will be buried some day. Images from Ethel Zickefoose's dream, made possible by Dream On Foundation.
