  In the battle with the "C" for 8 plus years, the road got bumpy, the path got narrow, and I had to give up the fight.  I want to give a special thank you to Pastor Moll and Pastor McKenney for all the prayers and visits.  Thank you to the Bellin crew, especially Dean at Palliative Care and Unity Hospice, (Heather, Amy and Jenn).  Thank you to Jim and Jeff Rabas at Algoma Motors for allowing my family to be with me for all the support.  

  Go on with your life and as the sun sets today forget your sorrows.  I am at Peace!  Heaven is my home!
