Helen, Denise and I have returned home. We got in after our none stop flight from LAX to MCO yesterday. It was an event getting a wheel chair and my Scooter thru Security in LAX but we made it and every thing else fell in line. Departrure and arrivals we on time. My son picked up at The Orlando Airport and transported us home. On the way we stopped and had our second Meal at Texas Roadhouse.
The Cruise. It was a great 14 days on the beautiful Sapphire with wonderful old friends and many new ones. We enjoyed ourselves as best we could.
I did not leave the ship except for one trip I had to make to KMart in Kauai to get necessary items we were running short. I had to stay with Helen the entire time due to her degradeing Health. She is declining fast and we all had to give our hand in helping her. I wish to publically thank Donna and Wayne for their help. The were great.
I am in the process of getting at home social help again for Helen. She had it before we left and now I have to renew the services.
Please give her a pray as she needs it dearly.

Ray, I am so glad that you and Helen were able to do this cruise in spite of the difficulties you had to face in doing so. Like Trip said, it was so good to see pictures of the both of you having a good time.
I will be keeping you both in my prayers. Praying that you'll find loving care to help Helen, and that you will have what you need to keep refreshed so that you can continue being that loving supporting husband that you always are. God bless you both.
Ray, I am so happy that you and Helen were able to go on this cruise. IT does not matter that you could not do sightseeing as I know that you will have great memories of this cruise.
I hope it is a very short time to get the home help that is needed.

Welcome Home Ray and Helen, So nice to know you both had a great time on this cruise. I wish I could have been there. Hawaii has alwways been on my "to do" list. I was there many years ago, it is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I think of you both daily and of course my prayers go out for you both.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
I too was very glad to see the photos of you and Helen on the cruise, having a GREAT time. The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I would love to get back to Hawaii one of these days. (I haven't been there since a brief stop there on my way to Vietnam!) Please know that you and Helen are on our prayer list as well. Take care of her, and we'll be seeing you at the next Central Florida dinner.
