My Condolences, I can not find an Obituary, will look again tomorrow.
Well, we haven't either. He died at home, which in Texas means they have to have an autopsy, but his XYL said yesterday that he has already been cremated but she is still too distraught and not made funeral arrangements. All we know for sure is she called 911, then the Medical Examiner came over & picked up the body, so we think she's just confused. There is family driving down to his QTH this weekend. Meanwhile I keep checking area newspapers, funeral homes, etc. It will be confirmed soon enough. Just odd the way it's been handled so far. You would think the funeral director would realize her condition and take over at some point. We should know more this weekend. Thanks.
