Martie Barrett, a grandmother from Rogers, AR, with terminal cancer, had a single dying wish — she wanted to see her grandson play the trumpet with his high school band just one more time.

Barrett could no longer attend football games at the nearby Roger Heritage High School, so the 120-member band brought the music to her — playing an impromptu performance in her front yard.

“All I could see was him,” Barrett said, referring to her grandson, Anthony. “I’m just so proud of him and he’s been such a good boy his whole life and brought me very much joy.”
