An Ohio native in hospice care in Virginia had a dying wish fulfilled last month when a restaurant shipped a mocha milkshake from their popular suburban Cleveland restaurant.
50-year-old Emily Pomeranz died on Friday of pancreatic cancer just 4 days after she had the shake she was longing for.

“I went to visit her in a hospice a few weeks ago and asked her if she needed anything .. She said with a smile, I wish I could have one more Tommy’s mocha milkshake,” Klein said.
