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 transfered 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 
faught 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.
