This is Barb Burckhardt (Ann's daughter) writing. Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep friends and family updated about Joe. This is also a place for you to leave messages for Joe and for us. We so appreciate your support, good thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement.
As many of you know, Joe's metastatic lung cancer is advancing; he was staying with Ann, and started in-home hospice care at her place; and now he has moved to N.C. Little residential hospice. The earlier journal entries on this site have a history of Joe's journey with lung cancer, and of the more recent developments this fall.
