I’m still floating on the positive energy from the Relay for Life. There were so many priceless moments. One of the most precious was when Little J carried the torch for the silent lap.
He held the little torch high, like a little Statue of Liberty. We, and hundreds of our community members, followed him around the track in the silent darkness. Thank you so much, Kandi, for giving Little J that honor. I don’t think he’ll ever forget it. I know we won’t.
I don’t think anyone in our group will forget Leigh’s fancy lighting gear either.
I’m headed to Los Angeles today. Sandra will pick me up from the airport and keep me in stitches, I’m sure, until my appointment with OC genius, Beth K, tomorrow. We’ll discuss my next treatment plan, which will start Thursday.
It’s hard to leave the guys in Sugartown right now, but I have lots of good memories to take with me and hold me over until I’m back tomorrow afternoon, like this one:
Thank you again to all of my friends who were able to come out yesterday. It meant the world to see you there: Mari, Leigh, Ronnie, Paul, Miguel, Linda, Julie, Matt, Wendy, Kathy, Heather, Carrie, Irene, Mary, Jeff, Janet, John, Jessica, Cathy, Ryan, Paul, Amy, Larry and Dave. And if you couldn’t make it this year, there will be many more years, and many more relays to come…
And to everyone else in Sugartown who was at the Relay this weekend, we are truly in this together, and we are SO lucky to be a part of such a supportive community.
