Meet Dewey

“I hope I can do some more good for my fellow man.”

Dewey's Story


Dewey came to the Home with nine decades of life lived and a fading knowledge of his special calling. He once showed horses!

In fact, Dewey trained horses for 50 years, mostly American Saddlebreds and Morgans.

He expected to be just another resident when he arrived. That was before he found out that the daughter of a staff member—her name was Julia—also shared a love of the saddle.

Soon Dewey was passing along magazines to her. Then she was able to visit. He was making friends.

Before his Home stay ended, he posed with a photo of his glory days and a thank you from a
young friend he never thought he would meet.

He realized he didn’t go to the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home to die; he went to live out his final days.

Dewey was featured in a write-up by the Indy Star. Read the Indy Star article here, or view all of Morning Light’s media mentions.
