Since I ended this blog there has been one thing in my mind that I can't get rid of.  There is one more story that I want to share.  I just simply can not leave the blog without the story of Conner.

Conner is a special kid, as are all my nieces and nephews.  All of them have special skills and talents as well as personality.  Every one of them accomplish special things on a daily basis but these accomplishments are usually kept within a circle of people who truly understand what a major accomplishment has been met by any of these kids.

Conner's personality is one that is funny and witty.  He likes jokes, he likes to fool people.  He is a little snipe in other words.  He is never hurtful or harmful though.  His parents have done a great job of raising him.

Now this story ... well I don't feel like I can do it justice.  The story was written up and appeared on local news casts around the Tuscaloosa area of Alabama.  This is the article from the Tuscaloosa news ( )

Northport boy recognized for heroism

Nine-year-old Connor Renfroe was surprised when he was recognized by the Northport City Council Monday and received a commendation by the Northport Fire Department for his efforts that helped save his dad’s life. On Jan. 30, Renfroe’s father, Bo Renfroe, had a seizure and was unresponsive. Connor was at home with him when it occurred and ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Then, he returned home to sit with his father until the paramedics arrived.
“He’s always said I was his hero, but that day he became mine,” Bo Renfroe said.
Northport Mayor Bobby Herndon declared Monday “Connor Renfroe Day” in Northport.


Very proud of you Conner.

And now the blog can end properly.
