This is what I am working towards. I originally had planned to run/walk this in honor of a close family friend, Carol Pannell. Aunt Carol was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer at the end of May. Today, Father's Day, she lost her battle with lung cancer and she is now with her daddy and her Heavenly Father.
I am now participating in the Free to Breathe Lung Cancer 5K in memory of Aunt Carol.
My heart is so sad right now. I didn't see her that often, but I loved the times when I got to see her. The last time I saw her was when Paw Paw was in the hospital. His defibrillator jolted him, and he was rushed to the hospital. When I got there, Aunt Carol and Uncle Larry were there, along with some other family and friends. There were there off and on for the few days that Paw Paw was in the hospital. Aunt Carol and Uncle Larry were as close to family as you could get without actually being related. My heart breaks for Uncle Larry and the rest of his family.
Please keep the Pannell family in your thoughts and prayers.
