And then life kicks ya right square in the nuts!
« on: April 18, 2015, 02:54:27 AM »
A friend of mine from High School died a couple years back from a Massive Heart Attack. We had lost contact over the years but I reconnected with his little sister.  I came to find that her grandson was battling cancer and, with her permission, I adopted him as a Team Member.  I posted his progress on our team site. This bald headed little kid never showed a frown.  I used him to show that anything can be done as long as you want it!  Tonight I learned that my "Special Minion's" grandmother, my HS friends Sister,  died unexpectedly yesterday evening.

The reality of the situation was an effort to show my kids that few things they will face in life will come close to what Stephen cintunues to face.  If he can sit there with his Minion Goggles on and a smile throgh 90% of it.  Nothing on the Football Field should be this daunting
