VIDEO: A snowy day turned into a day of fun for some kids at a Brooklyn Center hospice home. Crescent Cove is a place where families find help near the end of life and for respite care. On Tuesday, they received a surprise visit from two Brooklyn Center firefighters with a box full of sleds. "When we saw Brandon [Gautsch] and Royce [Wetterhahn] walk up with a box of sleds, we're going - what do they have up their sleeve today?" said Katie Lindenfelser, the founder and executive director of Crescent Cove. The sleds were immediately embraced by all the kids staying at Crescent Cove. Milo, who has a complex medical condition and shortened life expectancy, was getting rides around the halls inside, while Lauren, who is also getting care at Crescent Cove, was getting pulled around in the snow outside, while her care attendants cheered her on.
