Therefore, as his last wish, he wanted people - strangers - to give him a call or to send him a text. According to the Arizona Republic, he has continuous strokes that affect his vision and cognitive abilities. The Texan veteran has undergone three brain surgeries, and his body is deteriorating very fast.

The doctors have been unable to pinpoint what exactly has caused Hernandez's illness, and said the only thing they can do is make him as comfortable as possible.

She made a decision to post in the Caregivers of Wounded Warriors Facebook group and ask other veterans if they could send Lee text messages or give him a phone call so he'd have someone to talk to.

"It broke my heart", Ernestine said.

That's when Ernestine got the idea to reach out to the public.

Eventually word spread to other organizations, including Arizona Veterans Forum, which posted a call request on its Facebook page.

Good evening folks! I am asking for a favor from all you veterans! The 18-year Army veteran, who served in Iraq, has been in hospice care at their home in New Braunfels, Texas. "I am trying to give him the best life I am able to with the help of my mom", Ernestine said. After two hours with no calls, he told his wife, "I guess no one wants to talk to me".

"Thank you, everyone, for your calls and support", Ernestine said.

She seats alongside Lee to read texts and cards. Many come from veterans and people who want to let him know he is not alone. Stay tuned as I will talk to his wife tomorrow and verify that she is ok with sharing all over!

Since the Facebook post, Hernandez has seen an uptick in calls and messages, his wife, Ernestine, told the Arizona Republic.
