The Guest Book is expired.
Barclay Dawson Rader, 55, died August 12, 2012, in Ambergris Caye, Belize of a pulmonary embolism. Barclay suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for 27 years. He was in tremendous pain from RA and degenerative disc disease, but he always made the best of his situation and managed to reach his lifetime dream of retiring on the Caribbean despite his illness. We truly appreciate the kindness and wonderful care given to Barclay over the years by his friend and neurosurgeon, Dr. Winston Capel.
