    As you may have heard Dee, my beloved wife of 57 years, passed away
    about 10:30 Monday evening at Hospice... things seemed to accelerate
    very quickly this past week. She was being given a lot of pain medicine
    by Hospice in-home nurses to relieve her stomach pain, which begin to
    increase on Friday and continued through the weekend... to the point
    where they could not give her any more medicine here at home and she had
    to go into Hospice so they could monitor the increased medicine needed
    there at Hospice. She passed on quietly and peacefully when they finally
    were able to get the pain somewhat under control... Our two sons and two
    daughters were all there... We are still trying to understand the
    overall speed that the cancer seemed to take over her body... but the
    blessing is that she is finally at peace and at rest... and for that we
    are grateful...

    There will be a brief obituary in tomorrow mornings paper... with more
    on Friday and Saturday... We are having a private memorial celebration
    on Saturday evening for family only... and then on Sunday afternoon
    there will be a memorial celebration for anyone interested from 2 to 4
    PM in the Fellowship Hall at St. Johns Episcopal Church... both of these
    are very informal and very simple as Dee requested... she will be
    cremated and placed in a space reserved for her and me at Elmwood
    Cemetery... again, family only... she has 4 sisters with their families,
    plus our 4 children and their families... so ‘family only’ is still a
    pretty good sized group.

    Thank you ALL for being such good friends to Dee... and to me... Jack...
