The leaves are falling off the trees. The mornings are starting to become crisp. It’s fall. It’s cross country season.
Betty Remigino-Knapp brought her father Lindy to his chemotherapy session Tuesday morning at St. Francis Hospital. Lindy was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last fall. He goes to chemo every two weeks.
She wasn’t sure if he was up to going to the Conard High School cross country meet, where his youngest grandsons, Matthew and Tyler, would be running. Lindy’s wife of 64 years, June, was going.
And to her surprise, Lindy said he felt good enough to go, too.
So Lindy, 86, sat on his walker and watched as Tyler, a freshman at Conard, won the 5,000-meter race in 16 minutes, 34 seconds. He and June were there when Tyler won the freshman race at the Haddad Windham Invitational meet Sept. 9 and the next Saturday, when the boys ran at the Stratton Brook Invitational. Tyler won another freshman race and Matthew was 10th in the varsity race.
