In December of 1999 Calvin, a law clerk, came home with Kim, an occupational therapist. They had met at the PCA church in Harrisonburg, VA. An engagement followed soon and that summer, which is one the the happiest, if not the happiest, to memory, they were married. Two years ago, Kim, was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. She has had rounds of several chemotherapy drugs plus radiation. At times she has been very ill. She is now participating in a clinical trial. She writes of this journey below. I have said to her, and a few others, that I have never seen anyone handle such diagnosis and life after it better. I am doubtful I have seen anyone do as well. Kim is resilient and courageous, seldom sentimental, never self-pitying. She embraces life, continuing to work full-time coordinating clinical work and teaching in her field, and most continuing to enjoy her life as wife to Calvin, mother to Josh and Jackson, and church member at Christ the King in Roanoke. I know that Kim has inherited from her parents, Inman and Jeneane, some "tough genes." But, I cannot come close to fully explaining Kim without say this is God at work - his sufficient grace made perfect in human weakness. I see that in Calvin, too, who has shown remarkable strength I cannot otherwise explain. There is only one thing wrong with Kim. She is a Georgia Bulldog fan - big time. This has led to our one irreconcilable conflict. I am lifelong Florida Gator. Last spring I bought a big bag M&Ms, picked out all the orange and blue ones and sent them to her as an "encouragement." She is the more gracious one buying me Gator gear for presents. Anyway, keep on truckin', Kim, and, as you would say, "Love ya." By God's grace we will all meet at the destination sometime down the road.
