Oh dear. Woodpile Report reports today:
A personal note.
There’s no gentle way to say this, so I’ll not try. My wife is at the end stage of a terminal condition. As is always the case there’s some uncertainty. Weeks are possible, days are probable. Woodpile Report will go dark for a while when it happens.

Prayers up for Ol’ Remus and his wife– God bless them both.
Prayers for you and your wife Remus. Thanks for all you do.
May the Lord bless her and keep her. Prayers for the both of you.
As a caregiver whose wife is well past earlier prognoses of her demise and is yet hanging on, you had best believe that I will be filling the ether with prayers for the Remus clan. This is hard news to hear.
My prayers also. Life has a lot of sorrow, doesn’t it?
From what little that I understand, Remus’ wife’s illness isn’t new. The amazing thing is that he has kept up his weekly posting for as long as he has. I once wrote to a now long-abandoned blog, and as our host will attest, writing is work. It takes time and effort. Doing all that while you have an ailing loved-one is very difficult.
My go to person on Tues. Prayers.
Prayers from Kansas.
For years now, the WP has been my Tuesday morning go to site for news that flies under the radar screen and for survivalist tips. I am sorry to hear this and am praying for Ol’ Remus and his wife.
Remus begins each Woodpile Report with an appreciation of a masterpiece of painting and the artist who created it. His entire blog is itself a masterpiece, one of sanity and survivalism, written with insight, clarity, fearlessness and yet good humor. I don’t know his age but he reminds me of the World War II veterans who were my mentors in the 1950s and early ’60s: my Boy Scout troop leaders; my favorite high school teacher who had been a bombadier in the war, shot down and kept in a German POW camp, a tough and brilliant man who was also an artist and sang in his church choir; my own dad and mom, both WW II vets. Remus and his wife are in my prayers.
The Lord be with you both.
In mine too. Prayers at eventide and prayers in the new morning.
In mine too. I lost my wife to cancer, gradually over a period of half a year. The Lord be with you both.
My prayers are with you and your wife. Thank you for one of the enjoyable things I look forward to each week. God bless you and yours.
I sent him a personal email, as I have done from time to time. My second husband died January 23rd. I know the pain all too well.
