He said, "What do you mean?"
and look up to the sky when you get to the top?"
His answer was,
"Well, how do you think I make it up there in the first place?"
He does it to thank God... for getting him there... to the top.
He helps me do everything I do.
It's the same as what Kidd always said...

Last year, Rowan sold lemonade via Skype from the hospital. He also sold his autographed ginger lemonade recipe, and held a fundraising dinner at Copa Wine Bar instead of having a birthday party for himself. He was able to raise over $5000 last year.
In July, we went to the Kidd's Kids golf tournament in New Orleans so that Rowan could present his check to Kidd Kraddick himself on stage. Rowan was so proud, and so excited. God had a different plan that day though. Kidd had his picture taken with Rowan and the rest of the Kidd's Kids and their families, and passed away just moments later, when he was supposed to be on stage receiving Rowan's check.
the radio industry, and the hundreds and hundreds of chronically or terminally ill children from his extended Kidd's Kids Family. When we got back home to New Braunfels, a few days after his death, Rowan was interviewed by the Express News Newspaper and Kens-5 News.
The interview is a tear-jerker for sure. Check it out at the link below.
Right around minute 1:50 is where Rowan explains what he has to do now that Kidd has passed.
Rowan is caught on camera, getting choked up himself, saying "Kidd sent a lot of sick kids like me to Disney World, and now he died, so I have to take his place...until I get to heaven with him." This chronically ill child, once a recipient of the trip, seriously believed that it was his job now to carry on Kidd's legacy. It both warmed and broke our hearts at the same time.
