Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate all of your prayers and support. Rick has recently been diagnosed with a rare brain disease called CJD. This disease only affects one in 1 million. Rick has amazed us with his continued humor, great attitude and peacefulness in the face of this disease and terminal diagnosis. Our family is spending as much time with him as possible and we won't be having visitors at this time. We welcome and appreciate your support through prayers and encouraging words.
