Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends of Kaestner updated in one place. Recently Kaestner was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He is currently in hospice at his home in Massachusetts. The family has asked that phone calls be kept to the bare minimum, so we will be providing updates via this website. Please write to us here. On the evening of October 18, Kaestner passed quiet,y, surrounded by his family. A glorious Celebration of Life was held at the College Church of Seventh-Day Adventists, South Lancaster, Massachusetts, on November 4, with many of his family, friends, and past students paying tribute to his outstanding life. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
