Thank you for being amazing. You were a true gem of a man, putting everyone else’s needs first, always advocating for and assisting others in need with their disabling conditions. You did this despite your own Medical problems and disabling conditions. You tirelessly helped to raise awareness of Ehlers Danlos Syndromes, and gave so many a great sense of calm in the midst of their own storms. You will be truly missed, our warrior friend.
Martha and Lindy, we love you and you are in our prayers. Dick, I miss you.
