Hi Dave, How are you today?
Hope you've had your cuppa, a nice thick, buttery piece of toast and a big smile from Carole.
Thinking of you, Buddy.

Thank you my friend, I was in hospital last night with my left lung partially filled with Pneumonia, it wasn't a pleasant experience I must admit, I was in overnight but the antibiotics kicked in and I was let out the next evening.

I think my time may be nearing, no medical evidence, just a hunch.

Godspeed in your journey, wherever it takes you my friend. When the time comes I hope you and your family will be at peace with it. You will be missed here forever. Much love Sir Dave.

It’s frightening when your breathing is affected and your blood-oxygen levels drop; it can make anyone think they are about to die, but once your breathing improves again it’s very different. That must be scary Dave. So sorry to hear. You’ll get past this! Get better my friend.

My friend, I wish you peace and comfort as well as much more meaningful time with your loved ones. Hope you're able to get past this bout of pneumonia.

No one knows the day
No one knows the hour

It’s all about how you handle your journey, my friend

Be well.
Do not be in pain.
Pain control/Dyspnea control (shortness of breath) is something we physicians can provide for you.

Dave, words fail me. All I can say is peace to you and your family. The comment above resonated with me. Make sure to ask for all you need. You are a military man at heart, but make sure you over-communicate your thoughts and needs at this time. You owe it to yourself.

Our whole family wishes you a peaceful journey.

You have lived a model life of service to country and family and will be remembered fondly by everyone here for years. Please spend your time well.

You are one hell of a human being and it has been a pleasure sharing one very small part of your life.

Thank you for all the kind words fellas. Turning to practical things such as the burial, I have worked out that the main outlay will be the Viking Longship launched from Scarborough Pier, being fired at by arches in period costumes firing flaming arrows into the ship as it sails into the North Sea, I suspect that the sword placed in my hand won't be cheap either but, as everyone knows, it is a must as a an entry card into Valhalla.

Good to see you are still managing to find some humour in a difficult situation. Will you be taking all of your watches on the Longship as well Dave or perhaps just a GMT as you will be travelling?
