    Don and Pat Garlits

    We all know who Big Daddy is, his wife Pat is also wonderful person. She is one of the founding members of DRAW (Drag Racing Association of Women). I have been fortunate enough to have met and talked with them both over the years since I have been a DRAW member for 12 years and was elected to the Board of Directors for 2012. For the last 3 out of 4 years the wife and I have been fortunate enough to visit their museum after the Gatornationals race to count out the DRAW donation jars. We have got to sit in the office, talk to Pat and Don plus play with their Yorkie dogs. Pat has had Parkinsons disease for many years now and it has progressed every year. I am on their email list and received this message last evening.

    Friends,
    I put my wife into the hospital Friday and Saturday the Doctor told me she would never come home! The very next morning I had a stroke, however I was rushed to the hospital and they got to me in time and Iím home now doing great. Just a small memory loss for about an hour! The good Lord was with me! Pray for both of us.
    Thanks
    Don


    Thoughts and prayers go out to Don, Pat and the rest of the Garlits family...
