A Hospice Marriage

We Do...Forever & Always

On Monday, March 11, 2019, Mr. and Mrs. Una Mae and Eddie Lee McClellan renewed their wedding vows at the Happy Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a long term care facility located in Malvern, AR. The ceremony was officiated by Pastor Joe Robert McClellan, Eddie’s older brother (87 years young). The couple asked daughter, Arlene and her husband Jim Andersen to be their Matron of Honor and Best Man.

Originally married on November 15, 1971. The newlyweds lived in Dermott, Arkansas, Eddie brought five children to the union and Una had three of her own. Together, they were one big, happy family. Eventually moving to Hot Springs, they lived there for 28 years before deciding that Una needed a higher level of care in a skilled nursing facility, and Happy Valley became her home. Eddie decided that he needed to be nearer Una, so he moved in with her at the facility about two weeks ago.

The happy couple have 15 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren, with one on the way. If it all works out as Eddie hopes, the youngest great-grandchild will be born on his birthday, May 25, 2019.

Both Eddie and Una rave about the love and care she receives from Hospice Home Care, and from the staff at Happy Valley. They say they also love their new home at Happy Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and compare it to a hotel with all their needs being met by the staff.

Whoever said that the honeymoon doesn’t last forever, didn’t know Eddie and Una Mae! Love, “it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:7

Facing the end of life can be hard. Facing it alone, in the absence of family, friends, financial resources and qualified caregivers, is even harder.

The Tribute of Life Foundation believes that everyone deserves to complete their journey in a warm, clean bed, surrounded by people who care deeply about meeting their medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Through our 'No One is Alone' initiative, we are committed to funding two beds in the Comfort Care Center for people who could not afford it otherwise.
