Sheree - you and your husband have been in mine and Jill's prayers since the
Monday morning we heard. We just saw this option to send Online Condolences and wanted to share the above. I personally battled
cancer at a very young age (24) so this hits home - even saying that, I can't imagine what you and your husband, Mike
have been through. Trusting in your son being in a place where there is no more suffering and no more pain hopefully helps
in some measure - all our thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours.
Mike and Jill
