Gail's Husband Passes Suddenly

Gail and Craig
Our friend Gail lost her husband Craig to cancer this month - he was very young- in his 40s. 
Craig's passing leaves Gail with their two children, Case and , and leaves Gail and their 2 children, Case and Jessica.  We are devastated by Craig's passing as he kept his condition quiet for a long time. 

Here's what Gail wrote:  From Gail Johnson Whitcomb

Craig, Gail, Case and Jessica
I lost my soulmate and best friend today. Craig was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in oct 2010. He went through several rounds of chemo and radiation as surgery was not an option for us. In June it looked like treatments were working. A scan in September showed progression to metastatic as it spread to several other areas of his body. Up to three weeks ago he was health and things started to go down hill very quickly from there. I know many of you are shocked as you did not know, but that was the way Craig wanted it. He didn't want to dwell on it. We enjoyed everyday that we got to share together. I will miss him tremendously. We are having services in Massachusetts on Friday and will be sitting shiva at the whitcomb house on A st starting on Saturday at Sundown through Thursday at Sundown. Please come by and pay your respects to his whole family. ♥ I will be opening up his facebook page for posts so we all can memorialize him. Peace and love. He can rest peacefully now.
You can help:  There is now a benefit fund for Craig's children. Donations can be made to the 'Case and Jessica Whitcomb Fund' c/o Hingham Institute for Savings, 401 Nantasket Avenue, Hull, MA 02045.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
