Uncle Kendall always gave the coolest Christmas gifts. Much like John Giere, he had the newest and latest gadget and technology. Over the years, the gifts got lost but the memories stayed sweet. A favorite memory is a visit to mom and dad’s. He was in his wheelchair and Penelope brought a ball to him. They tossed it back and forth for a good 10 minutes. She would get tired but Kendall kept motioning her to throw it. I’m so glad he’s whole and healed. Forever missed. Jealous until we get there too.

I will always remember Kendall's desire to help people in need or in a predicament. I'll never forget the time he actually saved my life by jumping into quick action the moment he saw trouble. He and I had traveled to Disney World in Florida with Dad and Mom. That morning we had all become separated and were each doing our own thing. I was waiting on a curb for the Disney Parade determined to be on the front row so I could get great pics of the characters passing by. The August sun was relentless and started cooking my brain cells during the hour I waited. As the crowd gathered behind me I started to feel faint. But I heard music playing and decided to quickly get a couples of pics and head for the shade. As the band came around the corner, led by Goofy, Mickey and Donald, I held the camera up to catch Goofy. He was goofy alright. As I looked into the camera my red hot brain saw him twirling around in 360 vertical circles.... its was the magic kingdom for sure. I couldn't believe my eyes and moved the camera only to see Goofy normal marching and tooting his horn. Then I looked through the camera again to see him magically twirl about in space one more time before fainting and falling backward into a crowd of 1000's. As I lay on the ground unconscious I started to suffocate because there is no oxygen amid so many legs! Kendall 'happened' to pass and saw a few of the crowd bending down towards me to see why this lady was trying to lie down during a Disney Parade. He knew someone was in trouble and he started fighting his way through the crowd and eventually got to me. He yelled and screamed at people to move out of the way and asked a man to help him pick me up and move me to safety. I'll always admire his ferocious, fighting spirit to help anyone in need but especially that day when the one who needed help was his big sis. I'll miss you Kendall. God's grace & mercy has chased you down and now you are completely whole and mended. For that I am eternally grateful.
