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. On Wednesday, May 24, we took Joe to the doctor for abdominal pain. He was sent to the E.R. and had 7 liters of liquid removed from his abdomen and a C.T. scan. Joe has a tumor on his pancreas and cancer in other organs. We begin our struggle with pancreatic cancer with praise for God and his enduring promises, and the tremendous love from family and friends.
