Does anyone on this forum know of where I can get one without going to the family?


Thanks,

Jennifer -

I have the ability to print pictures on a dye sublimation printer. This is a commercial grade printer. Most local photo labs can print pictures from a disk also. If you want to send them to us via email I'll be happy to help get prints. You can email them to [email protected].

Hopefully they will not have to put him on a vent. His head and face are beat up pretty bad. He suffered numerous bad cuts,lacerations, and broken bones. We are still waiting for the results of the cat scan of his head, but at this point it looks pretty good. He was heavily sedated but was able to talk to me and ask and answer questions. He is very concerned about the well being of everyone involved. He does not really know what happened. He is going to need a lot of time and even more support to recover. Please pray for a complete and speedy recovery from both the accident and for the loss of his wife, friends and fellow boaters. Bruce is the only surviver and has got a very long road to recovery.
I was not at the scene but the general concensus is that something failed on Flash Gordons boat, causing it to make a sharp left turn, directly into the path of the oncoming boat of Bruce and Myra Gibson(The Nashville Catz).It appears that it was an unavoidable and tragic ACCIDENT. Once again, I was not at the scene.
We will stay here as long as it takes. If anyone needs us, we can be reached at 504-416-3607 or [email protected]. Please only call if nessesary. Thank you all for your support and prayers, they will need every bit of it. Eddie
Very very sad. Thanks for posting.

I only slept about an hour last night. I kept getting up and coming back to OSO and reading the posts. I just can't imagine the heartache these familys are feeling. I have been on Poker runs with both of the boats but never met them. We have shared our hello waves on runs but that's it. It makes me sad to have never taken the time to go over and talk with them. I am still so sick to my stomach over this. Even though I have never actually had the pleasure of meeting these people, I still feel I have lost close friends. This has really opened my eyes to a lot of things.

What terrible news to wake up to on a Sunday morning. Bruce and Myra attended Smoke on the Water this year. Two of the kindest people we have ever met. They won third place and donated the money back to Make a Wish of Michigan. Our thoughts and prayers are with all families.

Jennifer,
We can look at our pictures from Smoke and if we have any of them we will get them to you.

I feel the same I went to bed at 2 woke up at 7 but had nightmares all night. This board makes our community small, most of us have been on poker runs so we all understand
and all hurt. I can't stop thinking about the family members, I hope they have a loving support group around them.
