BlankDear Folks of the Canton,

As you saw last week by Lord Steven's missive, Caitlin's mother-in-law
suffered a stroke last Tuesday.  I am sorry to report that she has steadily
lost ground all this week, becoming less and less responsive with increasing
paralysis on the right side of her body.  Today she is running a 101 degree
fever when her normal temperature is 96 to 97 degrees.  She can not speak
and seems to be drifting in and out of conciousness.  Most of the time, she
appears to be in a light coma.

There is not much hope of a recovery.  Hospice care for the terminally ill
is being discussed.  Her feeding tube may be removed.

This is a very stressful, terrible, and sad time for our seneschal and her
husband.  We don't see him often but are always glad when we do.  The Lady
has never played our game but she is and was a fine woman, good mother and
devoted wife. (Her husband passed away a few years ago and she came to live
here to be close to Caitlin and William).  I have met with her on a few
occasions and she was always gracious and kind with a really cool sense of

I would ask and hope that each of you, in your own way and within your
belief systems, would pause to send each of these fine folk a good thought,
a prayer, some useful energy & peace.  This is when we all need our friends
to be those friends.

Thank you.  I'm sure that Caitlin and William will also thank you when this
all passes.

In Service,
Dear God,  Help me to be the person
my dog thinks I am.  Amen
