My wife Nita and I continue to be overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and prayers we have received while I am undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. My chemotherapy is ongoing and the team of medical professionals at the Mayo Clinic is hopeful for my full recovery.

It has been a tough battle but Nita and I have found comfort in the love and encouragement from our family and friends. We still have a long road ahead of us and we ask for your continued prayers.
