Richard Pitt Is Almost at Rest

Today's visit was another sad affair. Richard had not been able to speak since a bit before my visit yesterday.
Apparently the nurses had given him "another patch" which I gather is a higher dose of drug for pain. This suggests he is very near the end. The saving grace is he is not suffering -- at least outwardly.
His kids and brother were again on hand and they are bearing up stoically. What a marvelous support group.
I gave him all our thoughts and wishes -- but I believe the rest is up to you.
The previous day I had expressed to the family that the mods had asked to name one of the chicks at Delta 2 "Goldwing" -- the family all acknowledged this as a key point of Richard's joys. I suggest the other name be "Linux" -- Richard's other joy!
Thanks for all the notes and best wishes sent here.
