On Feb. 14, among family, friends and staff at Fairfield Medical Center, Jimmy Reeves and his wife Phyllis renewed their vows.
FMC Chaplain Gregory Schmaldfeldt conducted the ceremony at Jimmy’s bedside on the Telemetry Unit. The day was not only special because of it being Valentine’s Day but it was also Jimmy’s 81st birthday. Residents of Nelsonville, the couple even shared wedding cake and a birthday cake to mark the celebration.
“We thought today would be a perfect day; he means the world to me and has a heart of gold,” Phyllis said. “We have been married six years and thought now was the right time to renew our vows and show our continued commitment to each other.”
Jimmy Reeves has been at FMC for three days and is on hospice care. “We really wanted to give them a moment to remember, especially since it was Jimmy’s birthday and in honor of Valentine’s Day,” said Autumn Kincaid, clinical nurse leader at FMC. “We strive to accommodate our patients in the best way we possibly can and were so glad to coordinate such a special ceremony.”
Many staff members attended the ceremony including Music Therapist Erin Spring. She marked the occasion by singing “Happy Birthday” to Jimmy and also played the couple’s favorite song, “Keeper of the Stars.”
