Week of May 6, 2013
As many of you know, my wife Monica and I began the
Friends of St. John the Caregiver in 2005. (And
YourAgingParent.com is one of its programs.) Monica died
of uterine cancer in January of this year, and last week
Terry Faudree, passed away at the age of 92. Her
husband Russ, Monica's dad, died at the age of 97 just
two years ago next month.
After Monica's death many people pointed out what a
tremendous legacy from her the Friends of St. John the
And it is.
But it's also a legacy from her parents. They were the
ones who taught her what love, faith, family and service
to others truly mean.
I thank God for that.
And for them.

Maryland, Barbara S. of Michigan, and Laura W. of
Virginia as the newest members of the Friends of St.
John the Caregiver. Please keep them and their
intentions in your prayers. They have promised to pray
for you and yours.
And we cordially invite you to join
the Friends of St. John
the Caregiver! (FSJC's programs include
CatholicCaregivers.com.) You can find out more about

No meetings, no dues. All we ask is that
you pray for caregivers and those receiving care. Our members include
caregivers, care-receivers, and those who support both
