Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
As many of you know, Dave was diagnosed with Parkinson's ~10 years ago. After his retirement at the end of 2015 he moved back to our home in Noblesville, Indiana. When the disease progressed to the stage where he needed full time care, he moved into a nursing facility called the Stratford in 2017. Dave's health has slowly deteriorated, Parkinson's is a ruthless and debilitating disease. But until the recent world events, he had visitors daily. Dave's full time caregiver Erin was always by his side. Jim visited most mornings before work, Marlene spent most Saturdays with him, and Amy visited as often as she could from NYC/Chicago.
On Monday, April 13th, Dave tested positive for COVID-19. We are devastated by this news and wanted to start this site to keep those who love and care about Dave updated on his status as he fights this terrible virus.
