ONE LAST POST FOR CONNER

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 ( tuscaloosanews.com )

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.
