Keeping the Faith/In loving memory of Don Kramer
Dear Family and Friends,
It is time again for the Duke University Angels Among Us 5K Run/Walk. I will again be participating in Don's memory. This year's event will be on Saturday, April 27th. Don's battle with a GBM began on April 28, 2011. After a brave fight of 19 months, he went home to the Lord on November 29, 2012.
Angels Among Us is a beautiful event that allows us to come alongside those who continue their fight with brain cancer, have been newly diagnosed, are caring for a loved one, or run in a loved one's memory. It is an emotional day to say the least, but mainly it is a day of hope and healing.
Your prayers, donations and participation are wonderful ways to be a part of this memorable and important day. It is a beautiful day of community, remembrance, hope and love. I found a lovely garden where I pray before the event. Please let me know of any prayer requests you might have. I know we all have been affected by cancer in one way or another. My prayers continue long after that day.
Our verse for Don - 2 Timothy 4:6-8 ". . . the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day - and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."
