Default Sad news

We have returned from our orginized luncheon.

Bad news is double fold. Last night Kuki's father passed away. Kikli and Geela was schedule to drive to Orlando after disembarking from the Jewel this Morning. They learned about the passing while onboard the ship last night. They disembarked and obtained their rental car and drove to Orlando. We all met at TGI Fridays and had lunch. They will be flying to Calgary at 8 PM tonight. We had a wonderful lunch with 10 cruisers with Kuki and Geela.

2nd Bad news. Last night while onboard the Jewel Harry (Da Coot) Tweety's husband had a heart attack. He was removed from the ship and by ambulance was taken to a Hospital in Miami. I have been able to make contact with Gaile but hope I will be hearing from her before long.

That is all I can say at the moment. Please offer Prayers for Kuki's family and to Harry hoping for a speeded recovery.

Gaile called and reported that Harry will be fine. She was headed back to the Hospital at that moment and will report more later.

That certainly is double bad news all in a day. I am glad to see that DaCoot is feeling better. Gaille, keep strong, I am sure that was quite the scare for you.

Kuki and Gila, my sympathies. I know it cannot be an easy time. Thankfully you got to speak to him on the phone, and you also know, just as your Dad knows how much you loved each other and cared for each other, that stays forever and ever and a day.

So sorry to hear about Kuki's father, and Harry as well. We were unable to attend the luncheon today, as at the last minute work called! Needless to say, we are here for Gaile, and Harry. Tweets was certainly here for me, and the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) when I had my surgery last year, and it won't soon be forgotten. If she needs anything at all,,,,we're here for her.

My condolences to Kuki and family. Kuki you must remember that your Father wanted you to go on this cruise and stay on it so don't beat your self up for not being with him at the end. It was his wish.

Gaile sorry to hear about Harry's problems. But glad he is already doing better.

Dear Kuki and Geela, Please know that you are in our thoughts. You did what your father wanted you to do. Rushing home would not have changed the outcome. May this be a season of remembering your father's strengths and gifts to your family.
Tweety and DaCoot, We are glad that you will be doing better. Also glad that you got to enjoy your trip and this did not happen until the last day. Someone is looking out for you. Best of luck for a quick and safe recovery.

Sending my sincere condolences to Kuki and Geela for the loss of Kuki's Dad. I had so hoped that they would make it home in time.

Also sending good thoughts to Harry for a full recovery.....and strength for Gaile to keep from throttling him for scaring her witless.

Ray, thanks for being the bearer of all of the bad news.......keeping us in the loop.

We are so very very sorry Kuki was unable to make it home in time. Our deepest sympathies are with him and his entire family.

Although I don't know Harry "Da Coot," or his wife Tweety, I love the nickname and truly enjoyed your picture of him, Ray. We are so relieved he'll be okay. I thank you Ray, for conveying all of our concerns and best wishes for a speedy recovery to Harry and Tweety as I know you shall.

Rob and I were so sorry to hear of Kuki's father's passing. Our thoughts go out to Kuki and Geela at this time. As you recite the Kaddish prayer always remember the good times that you had with your dad.

Kuki, you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. From what you have shared about your Dad, he sounds like an incredible man. He has left a wonderful legacy, to live on through his children and grandchildren.

I'm glad to hear that Harry is on the road to recovery. Gaile, you and Da Coot are in my thoughts, as well. How scary that must have been for you.

It was our pleasure to meet you and your lovely Geela yesterday afternoon, Kuki, even though it was under such regrettable circumstances for you both. We offered our prayers last evening for your dear departed father, as well as for you and all of your grieving family members. We hope you had a safe flight home to Calgary.

Tweety, our thoughts and prayers are also with you and Harry. We were so happy to learn that he will get through this, just as he has frequently been able to do in the past. He's one tough old Coot! And he's so lucky to have you there for him.

Jack & Kim
