Encouragement...

Tonight was our Prostate Cancer Support group meeting. Last year one of our members was going to ride in the Pelotonia but broke his foot. He said that Petey was on top of his TV to give him encouragement to ride this year. I am happy to say he rode this year in the Pelotonia for 25 miles. He also asked me tonight if I wanted Petey back. I said Petey is yours! He said that made it Special and asked for a hug!
In the past 4 years Petey has touched so many lives!
