Dad passed away Saturday morning with Family around and he's now pain
free. God had a special plan and we were all blessed to have him for 79
years. I know that it was tough on him this past year but I was able to be
with him in Orlando to pay my final respects to a wonderful Dad, grandfather,
and great-grand father. Services will be March 6 and it will be another
tough day but Dad is without a doubt in a better place. Category: Thinking of You! [10 years ago]

Chris Richards update!
Today they took Chris off the vents AND...he said Gretchen's name when
the nurse asked him who she was! He tried to flip open her cell phone with his
thumb and then dial! He also figured out how to take the pulse oximeter
off......AND...he puckered up his lips...gave her a kiss...made a lip smacking
sound and smiled!
Chris is still in ICU and will be there for awhile. He still has pneumonia
and needs to get by the period of concern for vaso-spasms.
This is a miracle when you consider that 9 days ago, the doctor told Gretchen
to say her final good bye to Chris. The hospital Chaplain came by today because
she heard the news about Chris and wanted to see for herself. She couldn't
believe the difference from 9 days ago when she stood at his bedside ready to
give him last rites.
Gretchen thanks everyone for all your prayers, love, and support. But...don't
stop now! he said when she left he was flirting (though not talking) with the
cute young nurse. Could this be a good sign our Chris is coming back? We think
so!!! Category: Thinking of You! [10 years ago]

Chris Richards update!
Yesterday was a bad day. Chris didn't respond to any of the tests the
doctors/nurses gave him about moving hands or fingers, etc. He just sort of
stared but he did not seem to recognize anyone.
However, with the light of day, things seem more hopeful. Gretchen was in the
hall outside of his room and he seemed to gaze out at her. The nurse told
her, "he's looking at you." She is hoping that is true. She asked him if
he could to give her a thumbs up and he did! That was huge!
Today is going to be very big. They are going to try to take the intubator
out and see if he can breathe on his own. Seeing how he does will determine
whether or not they do a tracheotomy. So there is a lot going on with our
Chris today and Gretchen is right there by his side. Category: Thinking of You! [10 years ago]

Please keep Ed Bennett class of '70, and his family in your thoughts and
prayers. Ed has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), and is
undergoing chemo-therapy at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido,
California. Edís sister, Lillian Bennett Deal class of '71, and Edís wife,
Becky, are constantly at his side, encouraging Ed and monitoring the results of
each treatment. Rather than cards or phone calls, they ask that you send
prayers and good wishes. The doctors are concerned about exposure to
visitors as well. As many of you know, family illness is exhausting for
all family members. Please keep the entire family in your
hearts. Category: Thinking of You! [10 years ago]

Update on Ray Reese ' 67
Ray is doing really well, but will be a long time coming back. He's still
required to stay close to the Brown Cancer Center and sees his doctors every
week. He's isolated in the sense his immune system is not strong enough to be
out in the public yet. But he's HAPPY TO BE HOME AGAIN!!! At this point they
expect only good things and that he'll grow stronger everyday. He'd love to hear
from everyone! Ray thanks everyone for all their cards and prayers through this
fight against leukemia.
