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. Glenn had a recurrence of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma last year and it was treated last fall. It became more aggressive so he underwent chemotherapy and was in complete remission this March. To celebrate, Glenn and Molly went on a trip and, when in Santa Fe, his right leg went out. Molly drove him directly to St Mary's ER in Duluth and, after several weeks, a biopsy found lymphoma in the nerves and pelvis, causing multiple problems and extreme pain. He has had radiation and palliative care for pain and was released from St Mary's to a nursing home for a few days. Sadly, all recent efforts to overcome this disease have failed. In Glenn and Molly's cabin on a serene lake in Hayward, he will rest and live out his remaining precious days. (Please see the June 6 Journal entry "Transparency..." below for more details.) We are posting updates often and Glenn reads the messages which mean so much to him. Please use this site to stay informed and to lend support. If you are interested in donating to help with medical expenses, please go to the "Ways to Help" or "Personal Fundraising" links on this page. Thank you. Love!
Update: Glenn died peacefully with family and friends at his side Friday evening, June 16. Please see Journal entries below.
