Note: Tributes on this site go directly to Caring Bridge and not us. They are a worthwhile cause and this site is free for everyone but I don’t want you to think by donating here we are getting it. We are using this to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. NEW READERS: This blog is in reverse chronological order so you may want to start at the bottom with the first post entitled “Start Here” Thank you for visiting.
