July 23rd marks the first anniversary of my husband Ed's passing from Alzheimer's Disease. Our family grieves for him, but we are comforted in that his suffering is over. However, our work is not over. We need to learn more about this disease that affects and changes so many families. The Nicklas Family is inspired by our ALZ Team name that Ed chose himself - "Never Give Up Nicklas." We are not giving up our support of Alzheimer's research and encourage you to do the same.
This year's walk is on November 9 at NOVA Southeastern University. Last year we collected over $9,000 because of your support. Let's work together to match last year's total and beyond. Our family finds hope in these words from Hebrews 12 "Let us run with perseverance the race set before us." We know our race has not finished yet in finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease. Will you join us in the race?
Dementia affects the people we love and all who love them. Team Never Give Up Nicklas exists because we love and remember my husband Ed Nicklas. We work to honor him and his memory. We want to honor the people you love and miss too.
I am putting together two displays of names and photos. One will honor the memory of people we lost to dementia of any kind, and the other will share those we need to pray and care for.
If you have loved ones you want to include, just send names and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or give paper copies of photos to me. We are honored to share your story with others as we work to learn more about the causes and the cures for dementia.
Here's the 2nd news story about the Roof Campaign. The print edition is scheduled for August 28th in the Sawgrass Sun.
The Sawgrass News community section of the Sun-Sentinel newspaper has published this editorial about the Our Savior Lutheran Roof Campaign.
OUR SAVIOR LUTHERAN CHURCH PROPERTIES BOARD NEEDS HELPERS!!
The main help this Board needs are able and willing people to come out once a month to help with church maintenance. Things like hanging blinds, changing ballast in the lighting fixtures, painting, landscaping, and the list goes on. If you can come for one Saturday or more it would be a great help. Please see the dates in the Newsletter as they do vary due to the schedule of bulk pickup.
