We are heartbroken to announce that at 10:00am this morning, Kreg took his final breath. It was an excruciating end and his body fought tirelessly as we watched him gasp for air over the course of 9 hours. Today’s fight was proceeded by two weeks of battling pneumonia and chronic pain, all without being able to communicate with us because of difficulties with ALS. It was a traumatizing end and we are all relieved it’s over.
We are spending this weekend with close family, but will be hosting a Celebration of Life for Kreg at a later date. As soon as we decide the date and venue we will share it far and wide so that everyone that Kreg touched and everyone who touched Kreg can come celebrate his bravery, spirit, and love.
In lieu of flowers and food (but not booze, we accept booze. sorry dad), we hope you’ll consider a donation to either the ALS Association of Rhode Island to assist families like ours with their expenses, or to ALS Therapy Development Institute who focuses exclusively on finding a cure. Both are very necessary and worthy causes.

Thank you for all your kind words and support, we are feeling so loved and know Kreg will live on through all of us.
