On June 6th John lost his battle with PSP, he had been in a clinical trial for a year and the disease seemed to have been arrested. Not cured, but slowed down or the progression stopped. He believed he was a part of a future cure for this devastating disease.
John aspirated saliva and contracted strep pneumonia causing all of his organs to shut down within a day and a half. This was his first hospitalization and we feel blessed that he did not have to suffer any longer. He was surrounded by love with all of his four children and myself holding him and telling him it was alright to let go
And be with God.
He was my rock and the love of my life. I feel blessed that he was my husband for 58 years and the father of our daughter,three sons,15 grandchildren and four great grand children.
He will be missed, but we know he is in a better place. We are not having a traditional funeral, we will have a celebration of his life on the 4th of July with our traditional picnic to follow. His ashes will be spread in the Lake he loved.
