I went to my first Relay for Life on Friday night. My sister passed away in March because of complications from surgery for cancer on her lung. I was unable to stay for the entire walk, as it is still hard, and seeing her name on the bag that held her candle just broke my heart.
I want to say "thank you" to all who take their time to plan an event that we pray will someday eradicate this awful disease. It's a disease that's running rampant - and for those who have survived, for those who have lost loved ones and for those who care enough to plan this event, I thank you for your participation and your show of caring.
Thank you too for honoring our national anthem. There are not many who will remain respectful and be thankful for our land of the free. The young lady who sang did an awesome job.
