Relaying Thanks

I don’t know why exactly but I’ve always felt comfortable in Grafton.  Never more so than tonight.  Even when the lights went out during yet another downpour while I was speaking at the opening ceremonies of the Walsh County Relay for Life.

Eventually the rain lifted enough for Ginny and me to be able to join other cancer survivors in a beautiful balloon release and a ceremonial first Relay lap.

During the lap, a beautiful rainbow appeared, the first I’ve seen in years.  I’m not sure what it meant, but it was enough to take my breath away.

I can’t believe how lucky I am to have been asked to speak at such an wonderful event.  Really.

Thank you, Walsh County friends.  I won’t soon forget tonight.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Miranda Sherman. I was a past resident of the EGF/GF area and have started a Facebook group to keep the memory alive of the cities we once knew before the flood of 1997. I have found a lot of great photos of the flood but I am struggling to find pictures of the area pre-flood. I was wondering if you would like to join my group and if you had any pictures to contribute or an idea of where I can find some.

    I have had a great turnout for the group and there is a lot of interest but I need to find more pre-flood pictures as we all are dying to walk down memory lane.

    Thank You for everything, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
