|It rained as predicted, early morn.|
The tears from Heaven's morn.
A stream of thought reminds me,
Today we walk for our first born.
|Timmy, age 15 ( in relapse this pic.)|
|Tim with Corey; he is very swollen from kidney disease here.|
|Tim in a happier time with his beloved truck.|
My life mimics the weather,
|Well, I needed a rhyme here, and it's true!|
Savor the smells of nourishment,
Sweet bacon on grill to sizzle.
A new neighbor, a kid 'round the corner;
To hang with the Brother, new friend.
|I wouldn't put your food here if I were you...|
And others, the day we will spend.
|Ted, Chris Hardwick, (Ted's BFF from High school) and James...Tim and Corey's BFF.|
|Loma Linda Med. Center as seen|
from the freeway.
Road travels light as we pass
The place where miracles are born.
A community of caring and sharing;
On the radio, a song of a storm.
|Tim's FSGS was|
|"Jesus, Bring the Rain" Mercy Me|
The rain now is gone, puddles...purpose.
"If that's what it takes to praise you..."
It's your Grace that's been showered on us.
|Dr. Sahney, Tim's Pediatric Nephrologist, Loma Linda.|
The Doc who took care of my child.
Bittersweet, the story I'm sharing,
Told with a tear and a smile.
Showing up on a path that we stride,
A golf ball, hidden in the sand.
Telling me son, you're near, with approval,
Proud of all we have planned.
So, this gift is a cause for us all,
To be charitable and help find a cure.
For kidneys help us clean-up,
The things that leave us impure.
|Hazel Treviso, received a transplant 5 years ago!|
|Vicky Ford and family, her youngest with FSGS|
|Melanie Hunter and family|
In triumph and victory we finish,
To relax and to share our same plight.
New families with small ones and worries,
But with Hope in NephCure's Big Fight!
|Jessica, James, Chris, Ted, Eric, Coleene and Corey.|
