Greetings Friends, as many of you know, Ray McGeorge came down with  
meningitis and was rushed to the hospital on May 9th.  He has been  unconscious 
ever since.  Unfortunately, the meningitis caused several  complications 
including seizures and a massive stroke.  Ray has been  relatively stable the 
last couple of weeks but has shown no signs of  improvement.  

Ray is a very strong  person and very clear about his wishes.  He has an 
advanced directive,  also known as a living will.  He has explicitly expressed 
the desire that  his life not be extended artificially.  Diane has honored 
Ray's wishes  and asked that he be taken off the respirator.  He has been 
off the  respirator for limited periods but has always been placed back on.   
Additionally, this morning Ray is being transferred from Kendrid Hospital,  
which is a long term acute care facility, to St. John's  Hospis.

Quite frankly, we do not know  specifically what the future holds.  Ray has 
fought this battle as hard  as he knows how.  Without the respirator, we do 
not know exactly how Ray  will do.  We do know, however, that we are 
carrying out his wishes.   During this very difficult time, we request your 
continued thoughts and  prayers.    
Scott C. LaBarre,  Esq.
