From Wayne Mendro
Sorry to make this so generic, but there will be time later to answer personal inquiries. Marty has decided to call it quits. His quality of life, energy, spirits etc. have all gone considerably downhill. ... he doesn't want to be any more of a burden to Linda and me. ... Linda and I are on 24 hour alert. ... His mind is still 95% sharp, one degree of sharpness for each of his years.
What was decided was that he would go on hospice as soon as it can be arranged. ... We don't know when the end will be but it won't be very long from now, probably. He's a tough old coot. He's in no pain, just really depressed and tired of it all.
That's the news from here; we'll keep you all posted.
