A Heavy Heart

My heart has been so heavy since I learned of my friend Will's passing on Friday night.  I went to college at Union with Will and his wife Angie.  Will was diagnosed with cancer last October.  Only ten months ago!  

Sadly he was stricken with an aggressive and rapid growing cancer in his maxillary sinus cavity.  He had surgery to remove the tumor in November.  

By January/February it had already spread to his spine and vertebra.  Unfortunately the cancer was not responding to the radiation and chemo.  In March the doctors sent him home on hospice and gave him 2-3 weeks to live.  

His wife Angie has been so strong and amazing through this whole journey!  Please keep her in your prayers especially over the next few days, weeks and months.  Will was one of those people who was everyone's friend.  He has made such an impact on so many lives through his faith, courage, and strength.  They never gave up and prayed and believed God would heal Will.  Our hope and comfort come from the knowledge that he is no longer in pain and is healed sitting at the feet of Jesus!
