Izzy's Grandpa

This is a quick note for those of you who have known Izzy's Grandpa Kofoed and his struggle with cancer these past 10 years. He passed away peacefully in his sleep last night, July 10th, just a few hours after his 68th birthday. We are grateful he has been released from his sick body and is resting now. We will be having his funeral Friday, July 18th at 10:30 a.m. in the Middleton Stake Center.

Thank you all for your concerns and prayers--we have felt every one of them.

Kerri,
My heart is sad for the loss of Izzy's grandpa and, more importantly, your dad. I'm sure it is a relief to know his spirit is not bound to his body any longer, but I can only imagine the feeling of losing a parent. Please know that our prayers for you and your family continue. We love you!
Love,
Jenny

Kerri,
Our family here in MI, is thinking of you and yours during this time. Please know that you and the girls are in our prayers. Cancer is a vicious disease that knows no limits, we know this all to well unfortunately! I am pleased that your father is no longer fighting this battle and that he will join the elite group of "Cancer Angels" that will watch over our girls!
Prayers from MI

Kerri,

Oh, I just want to hug you! I'm sooo sorry for your heartaches lately. It truly makes my heart ache for you and your whole family. I wish you lived closer, because I would LOVE to take Izzy on a girls night out with me...I too am bald. I've got some crazy auto immune disorder going on and I've recently lost all of my hair. It's NOT fun! Well, my prayers are with you durring this trying time for you. I have a blog if you want to check it out its: thecrazystokers(dot)blogspot(dot)(com)
