Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.  

December 3, 2017:

John has been struggling with Multiple Myeloma since we discovered it in 2010.  He then had 2 surgeries, radiation therapy and 8 months of chemo.  After many months of difficult 
recovery and continuing side effects, John decided not to fight it anymore. 

Now, John is on the final road Home. His doctor has referred him to Hospice for pain control.  John’s bones are full of lesions which weaken them and eventually break them. Most
 recently, we have discovered that John has a broken rib and vertebrae. These fractures are very painful and will never heal until heaven. 

We are leaning heavily on God to walk us through this valley.  If you are a praying friend or family member, please  pray for adequate pain control for John,  for wisdom  for those treating him and grace for Linda.  

If you wish to call, please do.  I will post updates as changes occur. 

Thank you.
