“You are the best man I have ever known”. Those were the last words I barely audibly uttered to my father as I watched him slip away from his earthly body. The thing is, I really meant those words. What a lucky woman I am to have been blessed with such a dad. My dad Kitrick Lee Lauer (aka “Kit”) was not perfect by any means, just as no human is. But, he truly was the most wonderful man that I have ever known.
This is a difficult time for me as father's day approaches. What a wonderful man he was and I will always be grateful for him.
Love you forever dad!

I was at Hope at 7AM. I was a volunteer for the race set-up, so I made sure I was on time. When I drove in at the parking lot, many volunteers were already there - the place was almost ready to go - a lot of set-up were already done.
I pulled my camera to take photo. Yikes - there was no card in the camera! I was in a rush to get out of the house, I didn't check if the card was in (it wasn't because I downloaded some photos the night before and neglected to return the card in the camera). I was bummed that I couldn't take photos. Good thing, Alana told me on Friday that there were several people who volunteered to take photos so I should not stress out about it. Whew! I am glad she told me that because I would have been really really bummed. I know I would have drove back home but that means I wouldn't be able to help there at that time. Anyway, I just decided to stay and cut oranges and bananas to get it ready for the snack after the run.
More photos will be posted here as soon as I get the copies taken by the other volunteers. In the meantime, here are some of the photos taken after the race (yes, I drove back to our house after the race to get the card:)
