[Legends News] Don (Curtis) suffered a massive stroke due to a blood clot breaking loose and hitting the left side of his brain. I (Dotty) found him in a pool of blood, face down in the bedroom two mornings ago, but it wasn’t until late last night that an MRI confirmed the stroke and severe damage. He has been transported to the new Hospice facility at Mayo Clinic, where he will receive the best of care. Please know that Don is in no pain, and would want nothing more that to end the life that he presently lives in. If anyone could say, “I’ve done it all!”, it would be Don. A wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend no one could have asked any more from. Pray for him. [ From Dotty Curtis, via Scott Teal ]
