Sir Kevin

ZekeZeke Shipmate
Those who remember Kevin might wish to know he's now on hospice. This is officially a 6 month thing, but they say many people live longer. He still knows me and can remember some old favorite things like about cars. Visiting so much seems to have got me a bit rundown and I had bronchitis over Christmas and now am down with the flu. Prayers would be appreciated. I think he still remembers the Ship so I will tell him I am posting here. I am not allowed to visit him for a week due to the flu which is very frustrating.

    I think of Sir Kevin every baseball season. I think I always shall. There are not a whole lot of baseball fans on the Ship, but he was one. My prayers for you both.

    Zeke, I understand your desire to be with him as much as possible, but take care of yourself, too. Please. I have been where you are. Destroying your own health to look after another is not a smart move. Take it from a Not Smart person. 🕯

    He loves to wear his Dodgers hat. I am mostly just resting today and tomorrow and hoping to feel better Monday.
  • Praying for you both.

    I still tell people about seeing the sand troll and going up in the space needle. We really enjoyed visiting you. Thanks for your wishes-peace is indeed needed.

    @Zeke, thanks for that update. I'm glad Sir Kevin is somewhere, where he is well looked after and that you can still enjoy visits with each other. Look after you too.

    I will definitely remind him of these great times. I think he still remembers the Ship.

    Thanks for the update, Zeke. Although I haven't met either of you in RL, I think of you often, and remember you in my prayers.

    Give him my love, and that of everyone here, and do try and look after yourself too.

    Prayers for you both. I remember mentions of many theatre shows he worked on - does he still enjoy listening to the music? There's been a lot of work done on the beneficial effects of music and particularly singing, for those with Alzheimers, dementia etc. I used to volunteer for a project called 'Singing for the Brain' and it was such fun singing along with people.

    Thanks, I remember the boat ride and the cafe where we ate. I'm reminded of how many lovrly Shipmates we have been able to meet over the years.

    He has very eclectic tastes in music. He has the classical radio station on in his room, and I sometimes play some rock and roll for him. He likes a program on Saturday evening that's all film scores.

    It's hard to get him to sing.

    Send him my best and I will remember you both in my prayers. Thank you for the update
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    I remember him well. Do send him my best wishes.
  • So sorry to hear this. I remember Sir K from the old Ship's Cafe and we chatted regularly over virtual cakes and coffee. I hope his enthusiasms for cars and such like help him. Send him my best wishes too.

    Make sure you get some time to yourself.

    Thoughts out to both of you, Zeke. Hope you're able to visit the hospice soon.

    I will tell him how many shipmates remember him and are including him in their prayers. Many thanks to all.
  • Adding my prayers for both of you - I really miss reading your posts on the Ship.
  • YangtzeYangtze Shipmate
    Oh sad news. Sending love. I was sad not to meet him (and you) when you came through London some years ago now.
  • ZekeZeke Shipmate
    Haven't been able to visit him for a week, been sick with the flu and doctor says stay away from there.My resistance is down and the people who live there are fragile too.☹
  • Prayers for @Zeke and Sir Kevin. The no visiting bit is sensible, but tough.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Shipmate, 8th Day Host, Hell Host
    Oh, Zeke, this is all so hard. Prayers ascending for both of you. The Ship was at her best when you were regulars.

    Please take care of yourself!

  • This must be very difficult for you both.

    I never met either of you but feel I "knew" Sir K from his postings on the Ship.

    Holding you both in prayer right now.
  • All best wishes to you and Sir Kevin. I always remember he based himself on Sir Kevin of Devon, a book I enjoyed reading as a child.
  • I remember the "Sir Kevin of Devon" posts! Best wishes and prayers to you both.
  • ZekeZeke Shipmate
    I'll tell him people remember that book. I think he will remember it too. As I recall, Sir Kevin was a "smallish boy, not quite eleven."
