Yesterday, I learned that one of our friends' cancer has returned, and metasticized. If you would like to visit her caringbridge site, it is www.caringbridge.org/visit/carymcrae.
Cary and her husband, Dave, are the couple who introduced me to Gregg at their Oktoberfest in 1989 (mentioned in "The Daddy-Daughter Bond" posting, below). They were newly married (Gregg was an usher in their wedding) and expecting their first child, and their home reflected their happiness. I worked with Dave at that time, in the public finance department of a regional bank. He is a wonderful man. When Gregg and I got married, Dave was in our wedding. They made their family's condo in Hawaii available to us for our honeymoon, as a gift.
This is hard news. Cary is a very strong, intelligent, generous and positive person, a devoted wife and mother of three daughters. I am praying that her treatment will be effective at stopping the cancer, and that she will have comfort and hope, joy and peace. Please hold her and her family in prayer.
