Mom and Dad

As some of you already know, our dad has had many medical struggles over the last few years. And although he is now back home under the watchful eyes and caring souls of Mom, and sisters Olivia and LauraBeth, he is faced with many challenges at this stage of his life.

Today there are no medical timelines or absolutes. We endeavor to insure his comfort and assist him with the inevitable transitions laid before him. He seems to be at peace with his position in life, though that doesn’t mean he’s willing to give up the fight to carry-on. Our father has always been a “determined” individual, and has overcome many obstacles in his time. Even now, he remains the same spirited and resolute soul we have always known.

Although Mom is doing well, (although she could use a lot more rest and we continue to remind her of that on a daily basis) her days are quite full as Dad’s primary care giver and devoted spouse. With this in mind, we, the Messimer siblings, would greatly appreciate your communications to our folks be via email and letters / cards for now. Our focus is to keep Mom as strong and positive as possible. Thus we are concerned with her having to keep everyone up-to-date with too many phone calls throughout the days ahead.

Georgia has offered to be a point of contact for the extended family and will keep in touch with Mom’s sisters and brothers as changes take place.

I know Mom and Dad would love to hear from you so please feel free to use the addresses below.

Hoping you all are having a wonderful holiday season and please feel free to post your family update on this site for all to catch-up upon.

Best Wishes,

Olivia, Chuck, LauraBeth, Ron and Mark
