Thanks again for praying for us. They have decided that after all the family gets here this evening that they are going unplug the ventilator. Probably around 7:30.

Pray for me riding home to Austin in the dark...well just a little prayer for me
A big one for his mom, sisters, and daughters. And my sister.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.'

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Yeah, what he said. We don't want to hear of you having an accident on the way back.

This is, I'm sure, an emotional time for you. If you don't feel up to riding, PM me and I will come get you in my truck with trailer and we can tow you and your bike home.

God be with you and your family and know that many prayers from your TWT family are being sent your way

Re: My turn to ask

Bob, thanks for the offer. My wife brought clothes and stuff for an overnight stay. If it is too late or I'm not up to riding we will just stay in town.

Re: My turn to ask

Well, we ended up staying a hotel in Temple. Went back to the hospital in the morning and had a short visit with my sister and headed home to feed the dog and maybe work a little. About 15 minutes after I got to the office my sister called with the news that he passed away around 11am. So now I'm at my folks house cleaning up. That way neither my sister nor my folks arrive to a mess. Then it's home to work remotely. I'm tired, but I can't even imagine how tired my sister is.

Thanks everybody for prayers. The bad part is over.

The bad part might be over for him but adjusting to life without him will be tough for his family, especially after the funeral when all the friends drift back into their regular routines... I'll try to keep them in my prayers.

Re: My turn to ask

Well, his daughters are from a previous marriage. The youngest lives with her mother and the oldest is married. So that helps some. The oldest lives in Corpus Christi, not too far from my sister. I suspect my sister will sell the house and move back up to Austin. That will be tough on her. My wife is planning on going down to help with the house prep.

But yes, the adjustment will take time.

Re: My turn to ask

It's strange. We ALL die. People have been dying for millennia. Yet we are almost always surprised when someone dies. I guess it is obviously worse when it is unexpected, but it seems like even when it is expected it is still really hard to take. There is just something about us that really wants things not to change and the mind seems to resist/fear it when things do change.

Thanks all. Had dinner with my sister this evening. She's headed back to Port A. to start sorting things out tomorrow. Memorial isn't until the 5th.

Re: My turn to ask

Well, time to wrap it up. This Saturday is the memorial in Port Aransas. Yep, i thought it would be in Austin, but they lived down there and Clyde had more friends there recently. So keep the family and friends in your thoughts and prayers as they gather to send him off. If you are in the area, they are doing a brief ceremony on the south jetty, then a wake for anyone that knew him at Shorty's. Or the field next to Shorty's. 3pm on the jetty, around 4pm at Shorty's.
