Alan Watson reported today that Jay Marshall is seriously ill in Chicago. He has been hospitalized for about seven days and is very weak and unable to speak.

Jay has enjoyed an amazing career in virtually every area of our art. He is not only a fount of knowledge but a genuinely nice man. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

I am sorry to hear of Mr. Marshall's illness.

I've witnessed the support and strength he has given this community for many many years.

He has done nothing but good for all of us.

I pray that his condition improves and that comfort is given to his friends and family.

They broke the mold after they made him.

God Bless You Jay Marshall.

[quote]Hello Magii,

Just back from the hospital and Jay looks much better, awake and alert. The Dr's last night were not very optimistic, but today he has much more energy and there is still every reason to hope for a positive outcome. When I went in earlier I told him he looked great and the nurse, in that condescending tone they have, said, "yes, Mr. Marshall is much more alert today," and Jay flipped her the bird behind her back. So that was a happy sight. When the Dr's said they don't know how long he has they meant it could go either way. Last night it was a little touchy, but this morning it seems to be going much better. We all hope for the best and for now things are going as well as can be expected.

Thanks for your concern. I'll be back to see him in an hour and will tell him that he's in your thoughts and that wishes for a speedy recovery are coming in from all points.

Warmest Regards,
