We are starting this site to post regular updates to decrease individual text messages and calls to my dad and mom as much as possible. We are so grateful for everyone's love, concern, support, prayers and well wishes during this difficult time. We're grateful for the outpouring of love and offers to help that you've all shown in recent weeks. Community, like family, is everything. My dad and our family have one of the best. We will update this page, so please continue to check back here and leave messages. We will share with my dad, too.
If you wish to send cards, photos, quotes and / or Bible verses to the hospital, my dad's address is: Gordon Hopcian 8A UH Room 8410 1500 E. Medical Center Drive Ann Arbor, MI 48109-5110
NO FLOWERS PLEASE. Only items that can be hung on the walls.
We are allowed to decorate his room and make it feel like home, as much as possible, so we'll add your notes of love to the walls.
At this time, we kindly ask for no visitors. My dad needs to rest as much as possible. As visitors are welcome, we'll share more guidelines and likely a schedule to make sure he isn't overwhelmed with visits. We'll likely do the same for phone calls as well. We just need to wrap our minds around what is happening here and how his days will look first.
Again, thank you for your love and support. More to come.
With much love, Emily – on behalf of Gordie, Carol and Kathryn
