Message:  My cousin, is one of the busiest people I know. He volunteers and emcees for many services, writes free lances articles, and is a mover and shaker in the arts community. He has a Thursday spot on a local TV news show....about what is going on in the arts field in Eugene/Springfield. He is retired now from the Register-Guard, but still keeps very busy.

He knows the Newbury/Pack family, interviewing Mickey a couple of times for the paper.

Fred had some lymph nodes removed from his neck yesterday. I was beside him while the doctor called to tell him that he has large cell lymphoma. We both were shocked. After hugs and tears, we gathered ourselves together, and he gave me permission to send out his name for prayers. He will be going through many tests, to see how extensive this is, what the prognosis is, etc. He has a very large support group, lots of friends, and his church family, plus his own family. He also has a positive outlook on life.

This is a happy time of year, many birthdays in the next few days, but I had to get this in and on your list of prayers. Fred is a special person who does so much for everyone, he deserves the best in life. He is 64....my "older cousin"...heh heh. We are like brother and sister.....the oldest of all the cousins....spoiled from the time we were born......lol.

Why did I tell you all this??....I guess my heart is so heavy at this time. Thanks for being here for me and Lois, and all others in need. I love you......God Bless you all.

love, Karen
