Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We plan to use it to keep family and friends updated in one place in order to limit the number of times we have to relay difficult and emotional news. Your support and words of hope and encouragement are immensely appreciated. We understand your first reaction may be to call or text, but we are still processing this news ourselves. We have set up this site trying to find a balance between informing those that love us and managing the emotional energy of replying to individual texts & calls. Thank you for your understanding and visiting. P.S. Don't feel obligated to donate to the site. It's a free site but they use donations to keep it free. I've donated to them already for choosing to use it. You do not need to!
