Dick Latvala Suffers Heart Attack

In Bay Area Hospital, in coma

Dick Latvala, Grateful Dead tape archivist, was hospitalized yesterday after an apparent heart attack. Dick is in a coma in a Bay Area hospital. Please send healing vibes and prayers his way.

I will post updates as they become available.

7/31/99 Update:

I just talked to Dennis McNally, and there is a slight update on Dick's condition. It was felt yesterday that Dick was somewhat responsive once or twice, in squeezing a visitor's hand. Even though Dick is still a very sick man, and still in a coma, this was taken as a positive sign by his friends. Your prayers are still needed, and quite important.
