A Dad’s Final Duty by Judy Kiel McKain

“So if love comes your way on a bright summer day

And you dream of a lifetime together

Promise God, mean it well, and He’ll bless you I tell

Through the storm clouds and sunshiny weather.”

“Melanoma,” the doctor said after taking a quick look. Those words strike fear into the hearts of anyone who hears them, but Jim’s family had faith and were sure that their faith would see them through. Their faith would certainly be tested as they battled this cancer. Then after surgery, they asked the doctor to give it to them straight, hoping for the best news and fearing the worst.

With a lump in my throat, I was able to say, “We’re a family who likes to deal with things head on, doctor. What does all this mean in terms of Jim’s prognosis?”

He looked me straight in the eye and said, “This disease will take Jim’s life; it could be a year, year and a half. It could be a matter of months.”

With his daughter’s upcoming wedding, Jim’s final wish was to walk his daughter down the aisle. God willing, he would do just that.

A Christmas Memory: The Tree Hunt by Judy Kiel McKain

Shelley Huber Trimble 1-24-1960 – 11-16-2016

Shelley was born and raised in Jackson County, Indiana, graduated from Brownstown High School and continued her education at Indiana University and University of Evansville.

Shelley wrote this memory of hunting the annual Christmas tree with her Dad and siblings. Mom would be at home awaiting the prize tree and all would join in the celebration of decoration.

Having given her Aunt, author Judy Kiel McKain, permission to share the poem results in this book.

In remembrance of Shelley’s life and contributions as a pediatric physical therapist for 34 years, we focus on the legacy she leaves through the Shelley A. Trimble Fund for Pediatric Neuro Recovery at the University of Louisville.

Shelley came to Louisville from Gainesville, FL in the fall of 2012, along with Dr. Andrea Behrman, to establish one of the first pediatric neuro recovery programs of its kind in the country embedded in Frazier Rehab Institute, now known as Kosair Charities Center for Pediatric Neuro Recovery at the University of Louisville.  She believed strongly in locomotor training as the best therapy she had ever witnessed for improving the lives of children with spinal cord injuries.
