I’m not sure what words to use to reflect on Ann Goldingay’s passing and on the impact that she and John had, or the example that they were, so I’ll just let Liz write.

Here’s the first paragraph (clicking here will take you to the full blog entry):

john goldingay, aside from being a world-renowned old testament scholar, is well-known at fuller for being a beautiful human being. his wife ann has been wheelchair-bound for 12 years, and more recently mute and unable to communicate. as she has deteriorated, he has cared for her unfailingly. taken her to concerts. brought her to chapel every week. taught only at night, so he can care for her during the day. and so on. any woman could only hope to marry someone as unfailingly committed as dr. goldingay.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours, John.
