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. In 1990 John was diagnosed with ALD/adult onset AMN. Adrenoleukomyneurapthy journey. The battle to stay healthy and active has been filled with many obstacles. For the past three years many physical changes have significantly impacted John's daily life. We have worked as a couple towards making mobility a number one priority. House modifications and a new set of wheels....tractors with lifts and his truck with hand controls. We have proudly watched both of our children marry their soul mates and in June of 2107 two "first" grand babies were born. Gus Francis & Hattie Ann Keeping John healthy is a priority and at times he struggles for months, weeks and days with being ill. We need always to look forward and be thankful of the blessings the two of us have shared in the past 35 years!
