As many of you know, my beautiful wife Diane Rhodes courageously fought a year long battle with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma that she sadly lost. One of her final requests is to ask others to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in lieu of flowers.
Donations made in Diane's name will go towards research and other activities in an effort to improve treatment options in hope that the number of people cured increases dramatically. As is typical of Diane, she continues to do good for others even after her passing.
My wife was a life force and a wonderful and gentle soul who was selfless in everything she did. Her beauty came from her heart and soul and her spirit lives on in those who loved her deeply. Her loss is extreme for many especially for our daughter.
Thank you for any gesture made to this campaign because every penny and every dollar will make a difference.
