I am so sorry to hear this. I pray his family will find comfort in the arms of each other and all of those around them that love them so much. Looking back to the time the first posting was up telling of his illness.....Seems like yesterday, it just shows us all how fast time goes and how we need to live each day to it's fullest. God be with you Koolaid, Oliver and family.

Re: A Toast at Sunset

I was at our new home (campsite) and I missed the toast! Here's my belated toast to HUCC..

We've been out of town over the weekend. I was saddened to see this post upon returning to check the board, but am comforted to know Hucc has found a peaceful place to rest without the pain of cancer. May his family feel the arms of so many of us around them, and also find a peace that passes all understanding.

Re: Hucc's Arrangements

Thanks Mary Ann.. When I talked with Koolaid this AM things were still not set...same with Lisa..she had not had final arrangements available from Koolaid, but was in transit to be finding out.... I am so desolate that I am just not going to be able to attend; but will be so glad for any who can.. my heart is so saddened. Joanne

For Hucc & Koolaid - Doves at sunset (Sunday)

<img src=http://aminus3.s3.amazonaws.com/image/g0003/u00002121/i00049712/9d7d9a2b2f5f4dd5e46bcc3bf628c1b6_large.jpg>


Seeing the Dove that Captain John has so thoughtfully placed next to our Cruise @ddicts banner in memory of Hucc, I thought this image of 3 doves might be appropriate for our Sunday Evening Toast - again to Hucc and the family he left behind. Please join me tonight for another toast.

I also remembered a plaintif Italian song that I used to sing when I would join the late night band aboard RMS Queen Elizabeth - it's named Vola Colomba - Fly (Away) Dove. It's about two people in love who've been separated by the death of one. It loses in translation - here are the lyrics in Italian for those who may know the language... "God in heaven, if I could be a dove, I would want to fly down below (to earth) where my beloved is...

To Koolaid and Hucc...

Vola colomba

Dio del Ciel se fossi una colomba
Vorrei volar laggiù dov'è il mio amor,
Che inginocchiato a San Giusto
Prega con l'animo mesto:
Fa che il mio amore torni
Ma torni presto

Vola, colomba bianca, vola
Diglielo tu
Che tornerò

Dille che non sarà più sola
E che mai più
La lascerò

Fummo felici uniti e ci han divisi
Ci sorrideva il sole, il cielo, il mar
Noi lasciavamo il cantiere
Lieti del nostro lavoro
E il campanon din don
Ci faceva il coro

Vola, colomba bianca, vola
Diglielo tu
Che tornerò

Tutte le sere m'addormento triste
E nei miei sogni piango e invoco te
Anche il mi vecio te sogna
Pensa alle pene sofferte
Piange e nasconde il viso tra le coperte

Vola, colomba bianca, vola
Diglielo tu
Che tornerò

Diglielo tu
Che tornerò.

I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Hucc and everything I could say has already been said but I am indeed sorry to hear of another fellow human being's passing. It's very evident he meant a great deal to many, many people. That means a lot.

Re: Hucc's Arrangements

I wish that I was able to attend but given my health situation it just isn't possible at this time. I know that I will spend Wednesday in quiet contemplation at the hospital chapel to remember Hucc and to pray for comfort for Koolaid and Oliver.
