It is with sadness that I must bring the news of the passing of Jesse Cope. He ran the San Pedro Daily. He fell ill earlier this week and was admitted to Belize Healthcare Partners where, late last evening, he succumbed to his illness. Though words are of little help, he was well cared for and went peacefully without pain. His family has been notified and are in touch with Dr. Lerida and will be making arrangements with her as to the final preparations.
I would not be posting this except that one of the more urgent matters is the care of Bear, his friend and companion dog. Bear is presently being boarded at Pampered Paws but with 14 other dogs in her care, Kaita cannot keep him. If there is anyone who can foster him temporarily until the family can make the decision as to what should happen with him, it would be appreciated. He is a well behaved older rottweiler who would cause no fuss. Please call Pampered Paws at 226-2227 if you can provide a home for him while Jesse's affairs are being sorted.
