Asking everyone to pause for a minute and offer a healing prayer: As some of you long-term members know, Terry VanDyke was a founding "father" of NavyDads- his wife was recently diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer (Glioblastoma). Please take a moment and say a healing prayer for Jane and for strength for Terry during this very difficult fight............
