Garry will be admitted to Hospice tomorrow.

Here is a FaceBook post with some additional info.

As many of you know, Garry's health condition is such that he is going into hospice care tomorrow. Like you, I feel very helpless regarding the life journey that he is on. He and I got to chatting the other evening and I mentioned to him that I wanted to do something--anything--to give back in his honor. This is what we came up with: a special Jimmy Buffett Lyric T-shirt sold on the Parrothead Products website. www.parrotheadproductsforsale.com (scroll down on the first page)
If you know Garry, you know that he is a devout animal lover. As such, he has requested that all of the proceeds from the sale of "Garry's Wings T-shirt" go to the Humane Society International. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes and sell for $28-$34.
If you are so inclined to give, this is a wonderful opportunity to not only help animals, but to honor Mrs. Joseph's son (as he so often refers to himself) AND have a cool T-shirt to wear to your next Jimmy Buffett concert.

Absolutely Heartbroken as I read through this thread. I've been AWOL for some time and didn't know this. God bless you, Garry! :cry:

Today marks the 10th anniversary that my dear sister passed away from Ovarian cancer. She took me to my very first Jimmy show back in 1989. Damn cancer.

As of Friday evening is in "temporary" hospice care--a place of respite--where they are working to manage his pain before deciding on a permanent care location.
