“Family members, friends and neighbors walked for my dad, Ron Moore. He was a special person who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was the oldest of eight and truly kept the family together emotionally and spiritually. Thank you to all who supported my team. We raised more than $700 and had 30 team members. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. My dad helped many people in his short life and was a very good steward while always being openly generous to others and to see the turnout for his team was an uplifting day for me and my family. While we think of my dad every day and miss him so much, the walk was a healing moment for us. Hope to see you on the track next year! Hugs...”
“Our family walked today for our beloved daughter, sister, mom, aunt and friend Rhonda Louie. My precious daughter lost her struggle with pancreatic cancer on March 6th of this year, she was only 41 years old and was just diagnosed 7 months prior to her death. She fought with all she had, going through painful chemo and radiation that left her weak and unable to eat. She never complained and always apologized for being a burden; she was never a burden and I would give my life to have her back with us and her children. We miss her more every day, she was the part of our family that was the organizer and big sister to not only her brothers and sister but to many others. She was the best mom who always remembered the little things, like a note with a kiss from mom in their lunch. She was and will always be my best friend, I will never understand why my daughter was taken from us, but I can only hope that research will someday find a cure and maybe another family will not experience what our family has gone through.”
