Be with the Medical Team and the Nursing staff. Give them compassion lord. And give peace and comfort to Robyn and Sharyn and their families. We ask all these things in your Sons Holy Name. Amen

To be honest I am in a twilight zone. We lost my father in law March 12th after a brief battle with congestive heart failure. He would of been 85 this month. He was a wonderful dad and grandfather and friend, we got our chance to say good bye, hug him hold him peacefully at home, though the final hours we not peaceful there was suffering but he went the way he wanted at home... And in in the mist of grieving our loss.. my dad and kids other papa is in harborview with tubes and gaging every now and then but it seems like he's not there and it hurts so much. I want my dad! I want to tell him all things is to our family and his friends!
You are all amazing, your post, the stories you've shared! My dad is a loved man and this brings me joy in the midst of all this pain. Thank you to everyone family and friends! Harborview staff has been amazing! Continued prayers for total healing and clarity on how to move forward. ❤️ Semper Fi

Patricia Berry Robyn .. everyone I know is praying for your dad <3 the update from the fire department made it all the way to Arizona .. So many of us from the class of '65 are pulling for him and praying all will be perfect. Adelle Herman Comfort said it perfectly…Talk to him and play music he loves. He loves the water and beaches so much, play some of those soothing relaxation tapes of water at the shore. When our dad had his aneurysm many many years ago .. they gave him less than a 1 % chance of even surviving surgery .. but the doctors at Harborview are the best of the best and God is a mighty healer .. our dad not only survived he lived another 30 plus years ! It took him a good week in ICU before he really "knew" we were there and probably another week or so before they took him off the ventilator .. but they have this down perfect there and your dad is in excellent hands. Praying for peace, comfort and strength for you and your family .. total healing for your dad and ... sending much love.

Shannon Bushong Prayers go out to you and your family🏻

Karen Shockley Praying for all of you Robyn🙏

Newest Update

Journal entry by James Fossos — Mar 30, 2019
With Dad today, Robyn and Danielle were here yesterday.  Mixed emotions, we are happy he no longer has to be in ICU, but sad because he now does not get the same attention as he has previously.  He is in a room that occupies a roommate and is very tiny, 1 nurse to 4 patients. He is pretty confused and that concerns us, still staying positive though.  Just want my dad back....Sharyn

Jim Fossos doctors have told his family that he is not going to be able to travel for the foreseeable future. So Jim will not be in attendance this year also.

I am saddened to report that Jim Fossos has passed away following a long illness. A proud and dedicated Marine, Jim served with Bravo Company in Vietnam.

He was a founding member of 1st Recon Battalion Association and served as Association Treasurer. Jim gave generously of his time and talent. He touched many of us and he will be greatly missed by his family and Recon teammates.
