Dear friends and family:
On October 19, 2016, Oran reached the end of his journey. A ferocious battle against his disease turned a 3-month prognosis into 21 wonderful months of company, music, and good food. And struggle, too—but, finally, letting go. Oran’s final night was peaceful, and his breaths were long and deep as his spirit left his body.
All of us, Oran especially, have been stunned by your generosity and kindness throughout this process. Your donations kept the house running during our hardest times, and your love keeps our spirits afloat. This past year and half simply wouldn’t have been possible without your help.
For a more detailed account of his passing, or to look back on Oran's wild and beautiful journey, please follow us at Caringbridge: Visit Caring Bridge
Roberta will continue to write to all of us from that website for updates on a Memorial Service for Oran. She still loves seeing your messages on Caring Bridge.
With love and gratefulness -Roberta, Jamie, Caelyn, Kara, Tanisha, Rachel, Diane, Susan, Mike, and our wonderful volunteers
