Thanks to everyone for all your prayers, calls,
cards, friendship and support throughout this very difficult time. We hope all of
you have a very wonderful Holiday and spend each and every moment with
the people you love the most. Time is very short and precious and make every
moment count. If you have not shared a story about
Jerry with us please do so as we continue to share these every day and they all
mean so much. Thank you for the support with our scholarship fund and to the
AQHA foundation. We will be awarding the scholarship next month. We hope to
continue this for as long as we can every year. Please pray for everyone
that is currently fighting cancer or in remission or have gone on to be with
the Lord. We must keep our fight up to erase this disease in our grandchildrens
lifetime. Thank you to AQHA for the special dedication given to Jerry during the AQHA World
Show. Thank you to the OU HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER for doing the screenings at the
show and to Doug Landon for his untiring effort to make us all aware of the
Fight Against Cancer. He is having a special futurity at his show in March and
I will be giving a traveling trophy in Honor of Jerry. Again Doug, thank you
Most of all thank you to God for giving me the
strength and honor of being with the most wonderful man in my life for 43
years. His courage was truly a inspiration and I miss him so. May
God Bless each of you and keep God first in your life.
