So is Bill now closer to home and in a comfortable environment ?

Like many here I'm happy that he's being treated nicely in consideration of what's going on.

Stay with us Bill, You're a good guy I would like to have some time with !

I dread writing this but per Sooze, Billy was moved to a private room at the hospice this afternoon so he can pass in peace. The end is near. She and Sonya are there with him now. Russ & locker too. He's still hanging on but it won't be much longer. Sooze has ok'd that I pass this along.

He had a busy morning of visitors earlier today as well as this past weekend. He knows how much he is loved and cared about and has people who love him there at his bedside now.

Oh I hate that blast feeling of ice water gong through my veins when I read this.
I'm glad they are giving him peace and dignity.

Fluoride-

Thanks for the update, even though it's really awful news for our community/family here on S-T. My thoughts and best wishes are now for those who are there with Billy, his best and most loyal friends: Locker, Sooze, Russ, the Agent, and of course yourself. I hope his passing is without pain and anguish.

Locker-My special thoughts for you as well, bro.

Whatever kindness we can muster will carry him like the Love Quilt, a regular magic carpet to the stars, becoknowing a boy back home.

hey there say, flouride , dear beth...

the rest of my life i will always remember this gift and how it made it
just in time...

i am really awe struck by this... i had thought it would be a get well love gift, but it is a 'hope him pass' gift...

i am really in deep awe and a bit of a spirit-hard-to-explain feeling...

if just one little thing has gone different or changed, it would NOT be
there right NOW... and from behind the scenes, i can tell you:

there were all kinds of things going on, that could have changed the timing, and even by a few hours, and it would not BE there right now... :O


and the autograph dog, i was praying for something very special and i could not find a sweet thing and i nearly gave up WHEN:
i SAW it out of the corner of my eye and i just KNEW it was for him:

had a clear sign under it: on sale, only 2.50
i still remember that deep awe, there too... felt like i was in another
world for a few seconds, ...

it WAS MEANT for bill...


i will never forget the photos of him with the little pup...
or the little kisses it got...

i better go now...
will see you all in a bit...
holding you all in my heart ...

I just spent the day with our buddy Billie. I'm so glad to see him once more.
He did acknowledge me this morning. Which made my day! But he isn't talking anymore
and barely opens his eyes. I hope to see tomorrow my sweet friend..

Love Ya Blitzo

blublockr, you might want to see my post upthread. Things took a turn later today. I'm so glad you were able to see him though.

I've been watching this thread all along, but didn't post because I don't know Bill.

You all are amazing. You've been a better crew for the man than many of us could ever hope for.

Godspeed Blitzo. May your forearms be full of power on the other side.

I had wind of this earlier and still it's no less unsettling to read about it now.

Let go Billy, and go where you have to go. We all have to go there, in our own time.
Thank you for everything Blitzo, you've made a huge difference in my own life in the way I look at things, and consider everything. We are better people for having known you.

Visited from 10 PM to Midnite w/Locker, Russ, and Susan. His breathing is labored, eyes not focused, and unresponsive for the most part. I put up some pics of Tucker/Tom Burke and another climbing shot on his wall of photos. He's in a single room now, and resting and not moving. May your journey from this world to the next be smooth and free floating...........we love you, Blitzo;.....thanks.........
