I’ve tried twice to post this, but each time I failed. I hopefully will be able to finish it this time. My loving wife and best friend passed away last night after a long battle with a demon known as Sine scleroderma. Her lungs were damaged so severely that she labored just to breathe. Finally it was too much for her heart and the Good Lord took her home.

As per her last wishes she will be cremated and then we will have a memorial service in Seldovia. We will post the time and date when we get it all figured out. Donica will be with me until the end of the month. She and Westin were able to come up and spend some time with Ann prior to her passing and that was great. When they walked into the room Ann’s eyes lite up and she smiled her biggest smile. it was a joy to see. She held their hands for the longest time.

I would like to thank all of you who rode this devil horse with us these last months and let you know that it would have been a much bumpier road had we not had all the love, support and prayers. I will always be grateful. On February 11th Ann and I would have celebrated 47 years of marriage. I was one lucky man to have such a loving companion and friend for all those years. Rest in peace. “My Lady. You will always be in my heart.”
