Schoep And John Update

Updating our story from the 18th – this is from the Schoep and John FB page, by John Unger.

Geez what to say now that I’m able to catch a few words in my head. Let me start by saying…


Everyone has been loving and wonderful, and you are making the impossible..possible. For without you this process would be unbearable. I’m going to say it again…
