Linda & I [Byford Hall] went to see AGC Gary Titus this afternoon [Jan. 19th] and we had a great time. His memory isn’t so good anymore but nonetheless it was a lot of fun swapping sea stories, especially of times in WestPac and of mutual friends. All in all it made for a very enjoyable afternoon.

To All,
I have heard from Capt Bill King's daughter Kathy, that Capt King is in failing health and has been placed in hospice care. He would love to hear from us but is not up to phone calls at the moment. Please send any notes or cards to Capt Bill King at 12906 Silver Crest Road, Chester VA 23831. I encourage you to take the time to reach out. Bill is a truly special leader and friend.

Some not such good news at our end. Bob was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. the VA neurologist has recommended that because of his dementia, diabetes,heart problems, etc - along with his agent orange exposure, he is not a good candidate for surgery or other treatments. Instead she is recommending putting him in paliative care (hospice) at the Bronx VA hospital. His children all agree and we have also decided not to tell him at this time. right now we are just waiting for a bed to become available. I have canceled our flight to CA and will have to take each day as it comes. I still would like to have your address. Best regards to Barbara, and wishing you both a ¹healthy & happy New Year!
