Dago gives thanks
?Editor’s note: For readers who may not know, Pat’s son, Roman, was diagnosed with cancer in 1983 when he was 23 months old. For many years, Pat began his column with Roman Watch, an update on his son’s health status. Through the years, Roman had many prayers offered from faithful cheerleaders near and far.
Roman Watch: With the holiday season set to get underway and 2013 Thanksgiving kicking it off this week, I have so many things to be thankful for. I would like to share some with you.
First off, Roman has had a lot of milestones in his miracle life and I am very, very thankful for them all.
Now, we have news of “Mo” planning to be married this next year. This is a big step and one we never thought would happen because of all his cancer and so on.
His health and marriage are things to really thank God for and I am truly grateful. We will let you all know more as time gets closer. He is doing very well with his health. Thank you, Lord and thanks to all of you folks for your prayers.
Others things I am thankful for include my family, my kids and grandkids all being healthy. Now we learn that our grandson, Shane and wife, Crystal, are having a baby in March. Yes, a great-grandchild to give thanks for.
My wife, Madge, and I are hitting our senior years. Boy, you get a lot of benefits with that — senior discounts and so on.
As far as sports are concerned, I am grateful for this year’s Buffalo football team coming oh-so-close to a state berth with a great 8-2 record.
Then those volleyball gals had a tremendous year, as well. Of course, I am thankful for all our young people.
I am also grateful for my beloved Broncos and all my friends and foes alike who are seeing a big year from the Chiefs.
The Kansas State Wildcats are having a good football season. We will see how the roundball season goes.
Kansas University will have a banner year on the hard court.
Yes, I am truly thankful for my family, friends, loyal readers and much more. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
