Clemson family ties run deep

[57]
Posted: Feb 6, 2018 9:51 AM
 

This past week my father in law, Clemson class of 1957, received some bad news with a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. At 82 years old treatment isn't likely but we are praying for a miracle. However, he decided he wanted to do something special for his grandson before he passed. Being a Citadel grad I could see it coming from a mile away because I understand the importance as well. Papa sat MJ, our 13 year old son, down and gave him his Clemson class ring and his diploma to hang beside my dad's Clemson diploma as well. As the only grandson and our family being the only descendants from him who are Clemson fans Papa wanted to keep his legacy of Clemson in the family. Incredible blessing and Papa's Clemson legacy and love will continue on for generations.

Go Tigers!

I hope your son will forever cherish those gifts. My father also gave my son his Clemson ring before he passed of liver cancer. I'll never forget the look on my son's face as he held the ring in his hand for the first time.

Pancreatic Cancer is a very tough one to beat. I hope he remains comfortable and at 82 he sounds like he has had a wonderful life and family.


Sending prayers and good thoughts your family's way.

This is such a special gift that your son will cherish for many years to come. Both of my grandfathers have passed but each left me their beloved Clemson rings. The rings sit in a cabinet aside my own. I stop to look at them often and remember what great conversations we had.

Prayers go out to your dad and the entire family from another Son of a Clemson '57 grad. I switch out wearing my ring and my dad's.
