Our family is being forced to make the hardest decision of our lives. Devens heart and liver are failing. We are choosing to take him home and keep him as comfortable as we can. We will do our best to enjoy him as much as possible over the coming days. Some of our nurse friends will help us out until we can get his hospice started. Please keep our family in your prayers as we face the hardest days of our lives.
