Some of you may know that our friend Gregg Lyman has been battling cancer. He recently relapsed and has been receiving hospice and palliative care. Unfortunately Gregg lost his wife a few years ago and his mother last year. He has 3 children, one completing college.

There are limited funds available for his family and if we can generate donations, it would give Gregg great solace in knowing his children have a small cushion moving forward on their own.

We snagged this quote from his facebook page which really reflects Gregg's outlook on life which has always been so positive and optimistic.

"It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end" by Ursula K. LeGuin.
