I have some sad news to forward to the group. Yesterday Chris Chapman
forwarded too me some email from a co-worker of Sean-Thomas Morrissey. Below

>       Sean was released from the hospital on Sept. 5, after having been

>       Unfortunately, he is not recovering as well as we'd hoped. He has a
> prosthesis (his left leg was amputated below the knee due to diabetic
> complications) and is able to walk on it, but is very, very frail. At this
> time, he still is not able to live without assistance. His family hopes to

> Redding, CA (he is with his mother now in McKinleyville, CA) --- it is

> He has not looked at his email since he went into the hospital in early
> June, nor is he getting email in California.
>       I wish there was good news I could give you, but it really isn't
