Please pray for Captain Dave!

Many Playenses received this sad email today:

Capt. Dave has been diagnosed as having small cell cancer that has metastasized to other parts of his body.
The oncologist, Dr. Wheeler with West Clinic, says that a reasonable estimate is about a year, if he responds to chemotherapy.

PLEASE REMEMBER HIM IN YOUR PRAYERS and PUT HIM ON ANY PRAYER LISTS YOU KNOW ABOUT. Right now he is in a hospital in the U.S.
(Southaven, Mississippi), but will probably be dismissed from the hospital this Saturday and go to my house in Memphis, Tennessee. We
are praying that he will feel well enough to go back to Playa soon.

Bless you all and Thanks,
Capt. Dave's sister, Sarah Ryan

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about Captain Dave. I only met him last year when we were staying next door to Bad Boys. I'd see him in the mornings with a bunch of stuff on his 4 wheeler delivering to the bar. First time I saw him I thought he'd make a great Santa with his beard and all. I finally had to talk to him.

I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. Cancer is such an awful disease.

Sending out speedy recovery vibes to you Cap'n. People like Captain Dave are the reason I keep coming back to Playa.

Bad Boys was the first beach bar I ever visited when I first came to Playa. Capt Dave welcomed my wife and I and we had a great talk as Grady sat with us at the bar giving us our own show as the sun set.
What a welcome and a great memory. I will miss him when we visit next week, but I will be at Bad Boys and raise a glass to a good man.
Get better and get back to Playa Captain.
