Last week, we sent an update to the WCF community requesting prayer for the health of Russell Edgerton, one of our longtime caretakers of the WCF building and beloved community member. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and was set to begin radiation treatments. Unfortunately, shortly after receiving this news, we were informed that Russell passed away in his sleep early Friday morning on April 30.

We grieve together with his family at the sudden loss of a dear friend and brother. We remember how Russell has been such an important part of the WCF family.
