“Life is a blessing! Enjoy every moment of your journey!”

I have created this website for all of our family and close friends to be able to communicate with my dad and share his journey as he acknowledges his sacred knowledge within and beats the battle with ALS! I am counting on my spiritual warriors, as one of my friends says, to continue to keep a positive mind set and all prayers fluid! The power of prayer is amazing and we really appreciate all your prayers!

Enjoy and feel free to comment on any of the things you read!

Blessings, light, and love to all…

      I have always thorught of you as another daughter. We have had so many great times and memories together. I am so proud of you and Randy raising three beautiful children. From knowing you from a very young age I have always thought that you would be a loving and caring mother. I know you have always wanted a close family for yourself. As you know I have always been family oriented and I am happy to see that you have become that way as well. In life family is the most important thing you have next to your health and friends. Enjoy every moment with them. I appreciate your love and support to Angela and all my family!!! Don Juan doesnt go down without a fight and I am looking forward to sharing more memories with you and your family. I love you Julie.

    Thanks for sharing the blog update…and glad to hear there were other Packer fans out there with us. “Cheese-heads unite!” We continue to keep you in our prayers and share the message of ALS research. You’re surrounded by such love and gifts of friendship. Dave & Cindy

      Hi Dave and Cindy,

      Thank you for your continued support. Dave, I really enjoyed your visit when you came to see me. I told a lot of John Deere people about you and what your doing. Yes, the Packers win was a big one and I won some money on it as well! Thank you for spreading the word and educating people on ALS. We all need to unite to make a difference in this world and that is the first step in finding a cure. I hope you both are doing well.

    Dear Don and Diann,
    I’m the medical student that came to visit you today…. and just wanted to say it was a total joy visiting with you and your lovely wife. You all are an inspiration and I continue to be amazed by your perseverance, faith and vision for spreading the word about ALS.

    I will spread the word about the golf tournament this June and hope you all have a great turnout!
