So this is what I do... I write, I write about others and the happenings at the CIG. Y'all know about my mom... But what I have never mentioned is loosing one of my best friends she 19 I was 20 to this horrible disease, cancer. We traveled on a great journey from the time she was diagnosed at 13. The heartache great. Before i opened the grill, one of the hockey moms was diagnosed with cancer , I also was on her journey... As we fought, prayed, laughed and cried . This journey was different, it wasnt a teenager saying good bye to her mom, it was a mom saying goodbye to her teenagers. This journey sucks and those are the only words I can say. My precious Shelby has received word, that both of his precious friends have been sent home to hospice. Wow the tears and sadness have been great .... He has never traveled this journey and my heart breaks for him, I have known to often this feeling. For now we have a heart of prayer. That our precious heavenly fathers brings peace, strength & comfort. This is a journey I wish on no one but this is the journey that all of us involved have been put on. Prayer & praise y'all!! God is good all the time........
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
