I ask for a moment of silence today to consider the life of a person I have never met. For the past few years I have listened to Kidd Kraddick in the morning. When I got up early to take my children to school, when I left work in the wee hours of the morning, his was a familiar voice I started or ended my day with.
Just a voice on the radio, but a voice that made me smile or laugh out loud. A voice to me but a face to others. A blessing to all the seriously ill children and their families whom he raised money to take to Disney World. A father and a friend to those who were close to him. My heart goes out to them all.
Kidd Kraddick passed away Saturday during a charity golf tournament to raise money for Kidd’s Kids. He will be missed, by those who knew and loved him and by those who only knew the sound of his voice.
