Gibby

To all our friends and loved ones, we want each of you to know that Gibby passed away last night after his amazing battle with bile duct cancer. Your wonderful and loving prayers were answered, as he had the most peaceful passing. Jeff, Cherish, Angela and I were able to care for him at home 24/7 for the last 4 weeks, with some hospice help starting 2 weeks ago. Though they came every day to check on him, it was only Tuesday evening when they began continuous care here at the house. That is how Gibby wanted it. So it was nice for all of us that he only had a little over 24 hours of true hospice care; he was so ready to be with the Lord, and told us Tuesday morning that he needed this to be over.
We were so blessed to have the time with him as a family, laughing and sharing all the wonderful moments of our life together. What a blessing he was to us, and to so many of you out there. He never complained and kept his sense of humor and strong faith through each and every day. He was our hero!!!!!
He loved you all so much ---- we will be giving you more information as soon as we know the details. It is 7:00 a.m. and we have been up all night, so we have to go the funeral home and take care of some details today. Our hearts are full of gratitude and love for all each of you has done for Gibby and for his family -- just know that we will never forget your love and kindness.
Our love,
Judy
