    Hello All,

    I just recieved a call from Buddy's wife Nancy.  After a month in John's Hopkins Buddy has entered hospice where he is resting comfortably.  Please send your thoughts and prayers to Buddy, Nancy and their family. 

    Nancy posted here and at the old site frequently, recently the care of Buddy and the family orchards have required all of her time and energy.

    I'll forward all posts to Nancy.  Also, if you'd like to send an email to Nancy please send it to me at [email protected] and I'll forward it off to her.

      Oh no, I just can't believe this.   I'm so sorry to hear this.  I've been wondering why I hadn't heard from her on Facebook.  Thanks for the update.

      Jerry,

      Thank you for letting us know. I haven't heard from Nancy for awhile and was getting concerned. They have both fought this disease with all they had. 

      I hate this beast with all of my heart. It is tearing so many up.

      Man, that sucks.  I hope Buddy can somehow hang on long enough to have peace, and pray that he and Nancy will enjoy  their time together.

      Best
