UPDATE FOR RICHARD LAWRENCE.
We visited with him yesterday and he was in and out of consciousness.
But he recognized myself and Phil Cotrell and perked up a bit. Being
such a strong man we are on a vigil knowing the end is near. The doctors
are saying a week maybe two it is a matter of how long his great big
heart will last. But due to the generosity of all of you we have given
Karen and Richard a greater gift than you could imagine. Because of the
donations Karen was able to bring Richard home and spend time together
with the assistance of a home health aide. They were able to have talks
and say all things we would imagine we would say if we were in their
position. Your gifts grew to mean the world to them. I am looking
forward to being with everyone so we share stories, memories, pictures
and laughs. Let's try our best to celebrate the life of wonderful
friend, husband, brother and son. But I wanted to give an update and to
thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!❤
