Four years ago, Kimberly Waterbury dived into a new perspective when her 95-Year-Old mother was diagnosed with stroke. At the time, she put herself together and decided to document all of their memories so that her mom could one day look through them in a book. The duo had tons of trips, and just after a glance through their memory book, Kimberly’s mom Dottie Schneider wanted more of the trips.
Kimberly Waterbury and her mom Dottie Schneider, 95, planned a trip to the beach.
Since spring, Kimberly and Dottie had planned beach vacations. They reportedly talked about it for months, and Dottie really wanted to visit the beach severely. Amid the trip, which included Kimberly’s best friend, Dottie shared she wanted to feel the warm, soft sand under her feet, and to make the dream a reality, Kimberly needed help from some kind strangers especially as Dottie uses a wheelchair.

Thankfully, a lifeguard with Orange Beach Surf Rescue saw what was happening and stepped in to assist the mom and daughter.
