Just had a nice, long talk with Ned. He's getting blood transfusions regularly (daily or thereabouts). Sometimes, it takes up his whole day.

He sounded in good spirits. His daughter has been around a good bit to help out. They actually got the Phantom out not too long ago (he may have written about it in here).

They are giving him some experimental drug that they hope may get him up and about a bit more. He's tired a lot, which is understandable. And, as it does happen, when you feel some energy, you USE IT ... and then you are tired again - but THAT'S a GOOD tired!

He said if the treatments work as they "kinda project," he thought he'd like to come to Winchester. It's not too far from home. Give him a chance to get The Phantom out and see some of his friends at Camp Stovebolt.

We're still pulling for you Ned.

The Phantom is such a glorious rig.

Keep on truckin', Ned!

Just wanted to report that I talked to Ned tonight for just a short while. He sounded okay on the phone but he is not doing well at all. He and the doctors are starting to talk about sending him home, and keeping him comfortable. We lost the connection after that, so I hope to hear from him over the weekend.

Will keep you posted when I hear more.

I had been trying to reach Ned for over a month and getting the same weird phone message. He has been on my mind lately and I knew I needed to keep trying. So, I hated the thought of doing this, but figured it was the one way to rule this idea out.

But I was wrong ...


"Ned L. Messerschmidt Jr., 61, of Orchard Beach, passed away at 2:09 a.m., Friday, Nov. 7, 2014 at his home."

The last we did talk, he sounded chipper. He was glad to be home. He was getting very tired of the blood transfusions almost every day - since they would take up his entire day.

There was not other obituary written (that I could find) but The Ned left us a nice "I'm passing" wave note with this thread.

See you on the other side, still doing 55 Ned. ~ John and Peg
