Royals provided a boost for all of us

Regarding the Through My Lens column (Janae Rempel, Dec. 2 issue), I read with much interest about your trip to Kansas City for the Royals? victory parade because I was in Kansas City for reasons that were not to see the Royals. I was in the KU Medical Center recovering from a major surgery.

I was able to watch the whole Series on my TV, from the first game to the parade. I was truly amazed by the sea of blue. From the televised pictures, it looked to me that there was not a square foot of bare ground around Union Station.

One thing that was outstanding to me was the joy and brotherly love in the city. Kansas City, Kan., and Kan?sas City, Mo., were definitely united in celebration.

To me, in a true show of sportsmanship, the team remembered those of us who were infirmed, sick and fighting between life and death. After the second game, I was given a cup of cheer: an official survivor glass with the whole team?s picture on it. I was told every patient was receiving one.

I am home now, the surgery was a success. The Royals were a success, too. My thoughts go to all who, with God?s love and help, turned it all into a success for one and all.
