    This is Jerry's daughter, Anna, updating for him. As I was looking I saw that he hasn't updated in nearly 2 weeks, so I'm sure most of you know he must not have been feeling very well. Usually all technological devices are attached to his hands. :)

    Dad passed away tonight at 8:30pm surrounded by many great family members and friends. It has been a rough couple of weeks, and he had been getting weaker and weaker. Last night he was barely able to get up the stairs to bed, and so my mom requested a hospital bed today for downstairs. He apparently did not want to rest there for very long. :) Mom, Zach, and I were all by his side when he passed. Some people had left shortly before then, and mom joked that he left along with the party.

    I know that this site got him through on many a tough day. He would always look to see how many people had checked the site since he posted last. Dad would often read those wonderful, encouraging posts out-loud to the whole family.

    Of course it is difficult, but we will make it through. He is where he has wanted to be, with God - no more pain and no more cancer.

    Thank you all for your love and support over the past year and a half!
