I just sent this email out, but in case you're not on the list or it gets blocked or whatever:
This morning, just after 10:00am Pacific Time, Jillâ€™s father â€” Harold Dean Foley â€” passed away. As many of you know, Jill has spent a lot of time in California tending to him over the past 18 months. We are glad she had the opportunity to have a couple of weeks with him recently, when he was lucid and communicative. We are also glad that we were able to fly here yesterday. She was with him, at his bedside, this morning when he died.
Thank all of you who have made it possible for her to spend so much time dealing with this. You have watched our children, walked our dog, driven us to and from the airport, assisted us financially, emotionally and spiritually. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful support network as you.
At this point in time, weâ€™re unsure of what the next few days will hold. He did not want any sort of memorial service. We will be out here until his affairs have been settled.
