COM: The Worst Possible News

Passed on by Kelly Bryan . . . unbelievably sad news . . .

For those of you who have learned from John Tveten's lectures, have enjoyed using many books, or been in the field with him, I'd like to invite you to send him a card letting him know what he's meant to you.

He started feeling very poorly at the Rockport Hummingbird Festival, having put on 14 pounds of weight from fluids. Gloria got him home and into the hospital in Baytown. Although they still aren't sure what the primary cancer is, they know it's cancer, probably involving the liver, spleen and adrenal glands, and aren't giving him more than a few days to survive. He's lucid, comfortable and at peace (at least that's what he told me yesterday). If you know John, you know he doesn't want a big fuss (and he doesn't want any type of funeral or memorial service), but if you know John, you may enjoy being able to say goodbye. If he goes before you get a card (Gloria doesn't do email!), I know Gloria and his son will appreciate hearing from you all, too.
