ETERNAL PATROL - Benny Benoid EN1(SS)

Hi Norm & Paul,

I just wanted to let you both know (and feel free to share please) that Benny (Uncle Nel) passed away this afternoon. Last week he had a stroke, spent a few days in the hospital, and went back to the nursing home. Yesterday at dinner time, he stopped breathing - they were able to give him oxygen, which kept his oxygen level high, but his blood pressure was very low. He was non responsive. They did not take him to the hospital as his wish was not to be resuscitated. They gave him some morphine to keep him comfortable and we just received the call about 20 minutes ago that he went very peacefully.

He requested just a graveside service, so I will give you more details once they're made.

I am so grateful that you both, along with other shipmates, were able to visit with him before he left. It meant the world to not only him, but his family as well!! Thank you for your prayers and I wish you the best.

Thanks,
Heather Clark

Sailor, rest your oar.
