Spare a prayer for Andy, our theme music composer
« on: November 17, 2017, 09:35:58 AM »
His wife has been fighting breast cancer for several years now, and it appears as though they may be on final approach as he's taking FMLA leave from work through the holidays.   :-\

It's pretty tough for them, too, as they also have 3 teenage kids w/ various levels of autism / special needs.

Please give your loved ones an extra hug this weekend.

Sorry to read this.

I already lost too many family members and friends to this terrible disease.

They'll definitely be in my prayers.

Are there any plans for crowdfunded assistance?

I saw he posted an update recently that didn't bode well. I wish I knew what words to say to make this easier. Been through it with family members but not a spouse.
