His time here, too short.
In his weeks on this earth, Colgin left a huge impression on the hearts of many, even though his own heart needed healing. A congenital condition made him a beautiful, smiling angel to the Lohman family a few short weeks after he was born in 2001.
Colgin’s family carries his spirit with them in everything they do. And each year, around his birthday, the family has organized a memorial golf tournament to celebrate his life and raise funding for a room in his honor at Mercy Regional Health Center. Over the past eight years, the event has raised nearly $50,000.
The 2011 event is a milestone one for the Lohman family and the tournament. June 19, 2011 marks Colgin’s tenth birthday :: and to mark the occasion, the family has planned an extra-special weekend to celebrate, remember, and honor Colgin. As such, a special person like this needs a special identification, and I was honored to be asked to create a logo that helped to memorialize Colgin and everything he means to the Lohman family. I’m proud to share Colgin’s logo and to pay it forward in a small way to the Lohmans ::
Here’s also more information about the June 2011 event, to be held at Prairiewood Retreat and Wamego Country Club ::
This coming Saturday, June 5, will mark the ninth annual event. If you’re in the area and would like to attend, you may register your team and find out more information here.
Watch for another PIF this week to come, too!
