We are the proud grandma and grandpa of Matt Tuttle-Timm. We went to the award ceremony for cross county runners Wednesdays.

We were really proud of the boys and girls this year. They are great young people.

We have watched Matt run since he started. One of his first runs was at the Sterling track. We stepped out for a moment and, of course, he won the race and the coach said, "What is your name -- you're awesome." And it went from there.

He is a senior this year and maybe he will run at college and we can watch him some more. I will miss the travel to the meets and the kids and the races.
But it has been a real hoot for four years.

Thank you to all for a great "run."

Donna & Patt Tuttle,
East Moline
