Dear family and friends,

Welcome to the Burger Abode! We have created this site for a multitude of reasons, all of which you will be informed of in a few minutes, hoping we retain your attention long enough to get you to that magical point!

We hope you find this blog informative. At this point we have a real need to dispurse large amounts of information to a vast number of people in an accurate and timely manner. Rita and I have recently discovered that this is a daunting task! What began as 5 outgoing cell phone calls quickly erupted to literally hundreds of unmanageable incoming calls, texts, and e-mails. We began questioning our correct relay of information - to who and when - and did I forget to tell this and that, and do I need to call back and etc... to the near pinnacle of insanity! Again, welcome to the Burger Abode! Where there is "no tellin' what's next!

Just a couple of quick notes: We realize that that we are unintentionally going to miss some folks on the first couple of publications of this blog. PLEASE DO NOT forward to them, but let us know via e-mail so we can add them to our distribution list. We just kinda want to know who all (if anyone) is keeping up with the Burger Abode! Also, there is a place at the bottom of this blog for comments and questions. Rita and I ask that you not utilize this function but address such issues to our email account burgerabodeupdate@sbcglobal.net
so they will be included in the next blog posting! Thank you in advance for your understanding in these matters!
Rita and John

Update from Krystle & Tiffany

It's been quite some time since the blog has been updated but this is a post that no one really wants to write. We all know John has fought as hard as he possibly can and unfortunately at this time it appears he is losing his battle. The past 7-8 months has been a wild ride and these last couple of weeks have been even harder. Last week John's oncologist decided she was going to take him off of all chemo medicine and strictly concentrate on trying to keep him comfortable.

After much thought, they decided to have hospice set up at the house and allow John to be as peaceful and comfortable as possible. Trying to get him situated with new medications has been quite the struggle but hopefully today this was finally achieved.

My mom and John wanted to thank everyone for their support and prayers along the way. It is very much appreciated and truly means the world to them. They can't thank you guys enough for all the calls, emails, cards and visits throughout the last 8 months. Please continue to keep John in your prayers.
