Carol was diagnosed with breast cancer in Jan 2012. "For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:6-8

The Langkau family would like to thank the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, Aurora VNA, Sharon and Scott for opening their home, and Mary Wolff for her special care.
