Sad news

Rachel-Dad-8x10-3
Our Daughter, Rachel, passed away on the morning of July 7, 2014. We had been gearing up to do more chemo when she was admitted to the hospital with trouble breathing. Probable causes were respiratory failure, pneumonia, and cardiac failure. Rachel wanted to fight this thing to the end, even if that meant being in the hospital rather than home. And fight to the end she did.

Thank you to all my blogger friends here, who sent love, warm wishes, prayers, and caring thoughts. It means a lot to us, and your support through this time was always an encouragement. Reading your posts let me connect in a small way with a world that was outside our little circle of clinic-Doctors-hospital. I didn't often comment, but I did share some posts with Rachel, which she enjoyed.

My best to you all.
