There was a Merry Andrew sighting on Facebook today. He posted an inquiry as to whether the Boston Gay Men's Chorus had returned safely from their trip to Greece.

@Butrflynet,

From Faith a few minutes ago:

Update for Andy Mikelsons. He is now on a 3-day morphine patch, refuses all food but is still intaking fluids. Thank God for the 34 years I have in AA - it is really is helping me cope. He has been so brave. I spoke to a local mortuary today and made arrangments to have him cremated. He has made a specific request for his ashes to be spread at Kilauea Crater with a non-host luncheon at the Volcano House (our favorite restuarant)

@edgarblythe,
I wish him a peaceful and painfree passing.

Merry is such an important person to so many of us and has been for many years. He is sorely missed already.

Every time I see this thread has a new post, I cringe.
Helpless . . .
But hoping nevertheless. . .

@dlowan,
Some of us have wasted a lot of time with Andy over the years.

From the days he wasted time without us ....

Andy--a mensch and a half. I hope the morphine is keeping him free of pain.

@dadpad,
And no doubt Dys will have a few funny choice expletives for him as well.

@edgarblythe,
Andy has been a wonderful companion on these boards and he is already keenly missed. I wish him peace as he ends his earthly journey.

@edgarblythe,
This is hard to read but also a comfort re his bravery, his coping, his wishes. And Faith, you are dear to us too. Peace to you, Andy, and peace to Faith.

@Region Philbis,
2007, another Boston gathering, Andrew taking a photo of me photographing the others

(He didn't want to be pictured with Penny for some reason. And in those days, it was 'username' who attended this gathering Wink )

@Region Philbis,
Reg, if you haven't done so, please post this photo on his Facebook page. He is still posting on occasion and would enjoy seeing this.

heart breaking..

but I am happy that he is being kept pain free, and hopefully sedated enough that he no longer lives in embarrassment due to his state of health which was a big issue to him.

I hope he lived a full, happy life and that the regrets he had were very very few.

Well, Penny was a bit of a lush! Talk about conduct unbecoming! Even a stuffed animal should have some standards.
