Just in case you hadn't seen it.


> Greetings to All:
> I want to thank all of you for all your kind messages and prayers for
> the healing of Octa, coming, as they have, from all over the known
> world.  You have uplifted me and I cannot express my gratitude, both for
> the support and to be part of such a group.
> Our prayers do not go unanswered.  Octa is no Healed.  Last evening,
> about 600PM EST,as many of you have heard by now, a pulmonary embolism
> caused an arrest which took him on ahead of us.  He had been suffering
> temperatures between 102 and 107.6F for the last 4 days.  He would have
> hated being a paraplegic.
> And while God was walking in His garden he noticed a flower that was not
> flourishing, so He took it to be with Him.
> Memorial services and rembrances are being arranged for Saturday, May
> 10th, at the Neill Funeral Home in Harrisburg, PA.  I understand the
> schedule is for gathering to begin abouto 7PM and the service at 8PM. 
> If you wish to bring your favorite upbeat or funny Octa story to tell,
> please do.  No floral tributes please.  We are, however, investigating
> an appropriate organization which deals with the research or
> rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries for those who are interested. 
> Details will follow, when we have them.
> Directions will also follow.  You can reach me at blueoak@pa.net or you
> can contact Mykos (mka Frank Kautz) at mykos@paonline.com. or (717)

> his bar exam, I'm a bit distracted myself these days.  Please be
> patient.
> Individual e-mail messages and phone calls will be answered as time and
> funds permit.  Thee are many details to arrange, and I am staying at the
> home of members of Blueoak, and I must not monopolize my hosts telephone
