The neurologist has informed us that there has been no improvement and the prognosis for dad to have the quality of life that he would have wanted is non-existent.  He is in multi-organ failure – this means his kidneys are not functioning, his liver is severely damaged, he has significant heart impairment and his brain has suffered severe damage.  With the help of all of his physicians, we have discussed options and have decided to withdraw life support at this time per his Living Will and the wishes he has expressed over the years.  At this point, we have no idea how long the dying process may take.  We want you to know that we are so grateful for all of the prayers and support that have been sent our way these past few days and that we have read all the comments to dad.  We know that dad is loved by many and at this difficult time we are going to be a bit selfish and ask that you allow us to spend these last moments with him as a family. We hope that you all understand, and again thank you so much for all your thoughts, prayers, and concern. We are so grateful.

    Just wanted all of you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers down here in Colorado. Just like my dad said, you always treated us just like we were your girls. I always loved coming to play at NC because I knew Glen would be there and I’d get a big hug. Nothing like a Glen hug!! Every time I bake brownies, I think of Glen…..best brownie recipe around! You’ll be missed!!! Rest in Peace.

    We love the Legler family SO much and I really hope you will utilize us if you need anything.
