Re: A Friend In Need

Myself and Emory will be there.

Kevin Sparkman Sensei represents a true warrior spirit. He is an invincible warrior that proved beyond a doubt that aikido was the martial art that would dominate my life. He took in a college kid and showed me aikido. He helped me adjust to single life without parents in a new city. He was in my wedding. And now he stays in my house when he visits me in Atlanta. He has been there for me for my entire adult life, and you can bet I will be there for him.

To those of us that are close to Kevin, his illness is inconceivable. He is a rock. He does not falter or give up. He will view his illness as just another challenge to prove he is invincible.

I believe him...
