PADS Golf Day

Scott, Johnny Mack, Darrell and Lee all played golf last week in the PADS Golf Tournament to raise money for PADS and in honor of Edie. This is the sign that Scott and the guys found on their golf carts. I was contacted a few weeks ago and asked to submit a photo of Edie for the tournament. I could not choose so I sent both. I did not want to tell Scott b/c I wanted it to be a surprise for him. He was delighted to see his little girl on their carts. At the end of the day Johnny Mack won a gift certificate for the Longest Drive and Scott won a football signed by Gene Stallings. It is a really cool football with a drawing of Gene Stallings and his son John Mark Stallings , who recently passed due to complications from a heart defect related to DS. If you have the time grab your tissues, smiles and click on this link to hear Gene Stallings talk about his son and the happiness "Johnny" made in his life. http://www.focusonthefamily.com/popups/media_player.aspx?ShowPath=Focus on the Family Daily&broadcastDate=2009-01-21

Brad Hennifer was also present giving golf lessons to other children with DS and playing with the other golfers during the tournament. Brad is Nationally recognized as a great sportsman in Golf and he "happens" to have DS. He travels the globe playing great golf and speaking on behalf of children with DS and those with special needs, and sharing his story of how full his life is. Not only has he been playing golf since the age of three, he also attends public school, plays on his high school basketball team, he works out regularly and has a job too! It is always great to hear these stories even more so when told by the people who live them!
