The Cancer word strikes fear in all of us. In the past week I have found out that two of the best people I know are both fighting the dreaded disease.
Mr. Sacco early in my career at Trinity brought a young football player to FGS camp in about 4th or 5th grade and told me he wanted to be a kicker. As my career progressed at Trinity I got to know Mr. Sacco and his family better than better. A former great player at Washington and a loyal Washington fan and alum he became a great source of advice for me. He was always encouraging me, and his support and advice was priceless. About 10 years later that boy he brought to football camp became my all conference kicker, his younger brother an all conference linemen, his family my freinds. So when I think about Mr. Sacco fighting this fight with his family, the Murphys and Sacco's right their with him. I think about a man who created quite a legacy, and ultimatley that is the judgement of a man. Keep fighting!
Mr.Kazmierczak came into my life because his son became my youngest daughter Andrea's first real boyfreind. He also lived right down the street. Mr. Kaz was as level headed a man as their was when it came to giving advice and expectations of his son in sports. He enjoyed watching his son Alex compete in sports and became like a second father to my daughter Andrea often stopping and watching her play sports. He was a supporter of everything we tried to do not only in football at Trinity but in the sports program. His son played on some great baseball teams at Trinity under Coach Levi Bristor. He would never let his son make excuses or stop fighting thats was not acceptable to him. I know he will not stop fighting or give up he has to many people in his life that care.
To Heal a Friend
God,think of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.
Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name.
Thank You, Lord.
