Jack and Kate forever

To everyone who may not have heard, Kate Nixon passed away from complications due to her long fight with CTEPH (Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension)  Kate was diagnosed with CTEPH 10 years ago and was determined to fight this deadly disease. She was successful in living 5 years longer than most are expected to live.  
Kate was married to Jack Nixon for almost 44 years. Their love for one another was deep and true.  Together they endured the loss of their oldest daughter, Eva Ann,  who tragically died at the age of 23.  This young family was broken but Kate and Jack worked hard to comfort the six younger sons as they comforted each other.
As many of you know, six years ago Jack was in a terrible motorcycle accident driving home from work near San Francisco.  During the course of his many operations they lost their house and his job of 20 years.  However, they did not lose their love for God or each other.  The accident and recent heart surgeries have left Jack unable to work.  He will need to move from Las Vegas to Idaho Falls where he will be closer to family.
The past few years have been extremely difficult for Kate and Jack has been by her side, loving her and caring for her and their family.  His pain and the pain of their sons, John, Aaron, Matt, Peter, Stephen, and Joe, their 2 grandsons and 6 granddaughters, is beyond comprehension.  We have had numerous requests asking what they can do to help Jack and his family during this difficult time. 
To help Jack's burden and his future hardship, we ask that if you are able, to make a donation.  Any amount with be forever appreciated. The money from this account will be used for immediate expenses and to help Jack move to Idaho Falls.
Funeral arrangements are still being worked out    Any updates regarding locations and times will be posted here.  Please share this post so others know of her death and can help if they are able.
