Associated Press Release

MACON, Ga. (AP) -- The endless salad and breadsticks were on the way, but the margarita arrived first. Deborah Monroe had dreamed about it. Now here she was, about to take a sip.

Tuesday evening she was among friends, dining with social workers and caregivers who've looked after her for years.

The meal was her dying wish.

Go to Olive Garden, order steak and, by golly, drink a margarita.

The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/11YIEFR ) that the 61-year-old Monroe has lung disease. Doctors figure she has maybe six months to live.

Jada McNair Elliott, a social worker who tends to her, recently got in touch with the Dream Foundation, a California-based wish-granting organization for adults.

Sure, they said, they'd pick up the tab for Monroe's evening out. And throw in a chauffeured white limo.
