I was scheduled to be an exhibitor at the August 2nd Cobb Galleria Georgia Bridal Show. I paid for a booth and was planning the decorations for the booth when my Dad became ill and had to be admitted to the hospital.
As his hospital stay lengthened from days to weeks and the time for the show came closer, I decided to call Elite Events (the creators of the show) to see if there would be any way for me to transfer my reservation and payment for a booth from the August show to a later show. When I called to ask for a reprieve to spend time with my Dad, Tommy Vaughn, the owner of Elite Events answered the phone. I told him what was happening in my life and asked once if I could move to the September 13th show at Gwinnett Center. Without hesitation he told me that I could switch to whatever date/location I preferred. This reprieve made my life so much easier when times were difficult.
My Dad died yesterday morning at Piedmont Hospital. My Mom and I were holding his hand when he died. I was able to spend many extra hours with him during the final weeks of his life, thanks to the kind folks at Elite Events.
Thanks again, Tommy.
