A friend posted this on her FB:

Marc Berquist, husband of Laura Berquist, who developed the Classical Curriculum for homeschoolers, Mother of Divine Grace School, and professor at St. Thomas Aquinas College in CA, is not expected to make it through this weekend (he is terminally ill). I've only recently been aware of the Berquists' situation, but want to ask for all of your prayers throughout the weekend for Marc and his family.
