A Manly Pedi Gift of a Day


Planning a Hospice Patient's Perfect Day

This manly man who served his country in the Air Force before working as an over-the-road truck driver has a secret. He loves getting mani-pedis.

Kenneth Stratton had never had one until his lady friend give him one as a gift for Christmas. He talked about it for two weeks afterward.


When he was asked what he wanted for his Gift of a Day, he was ready with his answer: a trip to Pizza Ranch for lunch and then a mani-pedi.
