Thanks to all of you for your replies and generosity. We didn't get out of the hospital till 10pm last. The hospice nurse had told us it would be very soon. He had no response while they were moving him into his hospice bed. They removed the IV and his lungs are starting to fill. I just can not believe we spoke on Friday although you could hear the pain in his voice. The deepest pain I feel is for my 86 year old mom. The most difficult thing in my entire life was to tell her last Friday he had 4-6 weeks left. Totally devesting to find out the very next day it was 4-6 days.
Yesterday I was praying hard to keep him alive at least another day. His wife's brother had passed away several years ago on 11/5.

Jassman, I may take you up on that offer. Brian is on the money. Very kind of you to offer. At this point I do not have a total head count but should be at least 10 people.

Again, I really appreciate all the responses on this. OSO has always been my second family.
Stan

Stan,

Jeff J. and I will be at the same marina which might help you if you have more people than one go fast can carry. I offer my 32AT also. I can carry 5 or 6.

Sorry to hear this Stan. My big boat is still in the shop, so I can't help there. But hopefully the OSO board can help. Prayers to you and your family.

Shortly after my last post on this thread we received a call from hospice to waste no time & get there. When we arrived his eyes were wide open for the first time since Sunday and still non responsive. He definetly had his last burst of energy to say goodbye. I could tell he was listening by the expression in his eyes. Shortly after we all said our goodbyes, his eyes closed and breaths came far apart. It was shortly after noon he took his last breath and went peacefully into God's hands.

Florida has a 48 hour law before cremation upon the death certificate which was signed yesterday. We have an appointment this morning with the funeral home. Should have a better idea later today when his ashes will be available for his final request. I'm speculating Monday and not certain of a final head count at this point.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts, prayers, and support.
Stan

Stan,

First, my condolences to your and yours.

I will keep an eye on this thread. The Active Thunder Factory/camp is returning from Key West on Monday; back to Pompano Beach/14th Street Ramp.

I don't have my boat, and have to catch a flight on Monday evening back to VA; but there will be several boats coming back at the same time, and we might can make this happen.

Drop me a PM or email if you need to reach me. I get both on my Blackberry.
