Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

On Wednesday, May 25th, Bill took his BMW motorcycle out for a short ride. A few miles from home on SR 206, a deer ran out in front of him.  He swerved and avoided the deer, but put the bike down and was seriously injured. He was Lifeflighted to Orange Park Memorial Trauma Center with head trauma and several broken bones.  Surgeons operated to relieve pressure on the brain, and he has been in a coma since.  They will operate again next week to repair some of the fractures.  His condition is stable , but this is going to be a long recovery.

I hope to use CaringBridge to keep folks informed.  The outpouring of concern has been heartwarming. Please keep Bill (and me) in your thoughts and prayers.
