    Tonight I received a phone call from Richoso1 lovely wife Gloria.  As most of us that have been on the forum here at SM for a while will know that Rich has been sick for quite sometime.

    Tonight Gloria informed me that Rich has taken a turn for the worst and is now home on  Hospice care.  The medico's don't think that Rich will last much longer-a week is what they are saying.

    Rich knows that he is going home soon and the Hospice staff is keeping him comfortable.

    Please keep Rich and Gloria in your prayers. Especially Gloria has she is also dealing with her mother and her Hospice care (Gloria's mother also lives with her and Rich). 

    I asked Gloria to keep me informed as to what is going on. I'll keep you all informed as Gloria gives me updates.

    This really sucks - I just spoke to him a couple of weeks ago and he was in great spirits. He has been dealt a really shitty hand and we will all suffer a loss

    I will reach out to Gloria tomorrow to see if we can help
