Many of you contributed to the fund raising my husband and I did this year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We ran a half-marathon with that group and raised the money in honor of my cousin, Darcy Skinner. He was fighting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Darcy died yesterday.

If you have any extra prayers, please offer them up for the comfort of my Aunt Norma, Darcy’s beloved companion, Theresa, and his teenage daughter, Lauren.

Thank you.
