Lori Painting.jpgHey all,
I don't post alot on here, but I have been going to the UP for 14 or so years now and have met some really great people!
My longest snowmobile buddy was diagnosed with a rare type of Melanoma cancer while we were just getting our trip started this year! We have been going to the Wildlife Refuge Cabins together for about 7 years and he got "the call" after we had arrived for the trip 15 minutes this Feb. I will always remember that conversation following the call! Myself being a survivor of nearly 20 years, I thought he has this licked! Right? Mike has had nothing but shatty news every appointment since and has just found out his lungs look like a bomb went off in them (non-smoker).
Michael is the best dang guy you'd ever meet period. There is a benefit for he and his family this Saturday 5-19-12 in Robbinsdale, MN. with a silent auction, band, DJ, meal, etc. If you have nothing else going on, I'd love to shake a fellow JD'ers hand! There will be a few of there to support Micahel.
Point of my post is in my emailing with Lori from the cabins, basically our "UP Sister" (too young to be my UP mom ), I had told her in passing about the benefit. In response, she decided to send down a "LORI ORIGINAL" 14 X 18 oil painting as well as a two night stay gift card for the cabins!!! Folks, Lori and Dave are truly AMAZING people who need to be recognized for their generousity and passion for their friends/guests.
THANK YOU LORI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
