Strong 'til the End

Hi all,

Thank you for the thoughtful messages and letters about who my dad is. We love reading the notes with him. We cry, we laugh, we cry, and then laugh some more. At night, we are enjoying listening to some of my dad’s favorite songs, which we are saving to this playlist.


We are working with at-home hospice to help get my dad comfortable which is proving to be more challenging than we anticipated. Constant bloody noses and labored breathing are among the many challenges he faces at every moment. As predicted, my mom has been a champ through it all and my dad continues to show gratitude for those helping him.


Each day, he tells me, “God’s grace is sufficient for me, today.” My dad’s prayer is that he stays strong in his faith in God until the very end.
