Last night I attended my very first Relay For Life. We donated $100 so that we could have a Tiki Torch to light In Memory and In Honor of our family and friends who have been touched by Cancer. I didn't find out until the day before that I could decorate the torch and surrounding fence so I quickly made a little sign and used curling ribbon that flowed to the bottom as an added touch. Not bad but next year I plan to have pictures of all our loved ones to display...I wish now I would have taken pics of all the torches and luminaries which were lit, there were hundrends lining the bottom of the fence but I was so overwhelmed and actually surprised in the emotions this brought up, I just didn't think about it.
These are our loved ones who have been touched by this terrible diease...
In Memory of:
John & Carolyn Wilkie
In Honor of Survivors:
