It has truly been amazing to see the outflow of love, via messages, phone calls and visits over the past week. While Dad’s health continues to decline, these gestures definitely lift his spirit.
Hearing or reading the wonderful impacts he’s had on others is humbling to me. But to be honest, witnessing his humility and sometimes surprise as he receives these messages, reinforces to me how unassuming he’s been his whole life. Having a positive impact is instinctive for him – so instinctive it seems effortless, and oftentimes, he may not even realize he had an impact until someone tells him. We’ve been blessed to have his example.
Keep the messages, calls and visits coming. Thank you so much for your continued love, prayers and support.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

As many of you know Dad was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in 2007. For the most part since that time, there has been very little progression. We learned on September 20, 2018, that Dad’s pulmonary fibrosis, instead of lying dormant has now become very active. As many of you know pulmonary fibrosis destroys lung tissue gradually. There is no cure. With the acceleration of the condition, we know his time is limited and could be very short.
Mom & Dad continue to live at Aldersgate Retirement Community in Charlotte, where they have lived since December, 2011. Your ongoing prayers and concerns are coveted and we appreciate your continued support. We will continue to provide updates on this website as they occur. Please feel free to also leave comments or memories if you are moved to do so.
