Hi guys,
I already knew about this incident, as Mr. Pedison was our guest at Caribe Island. Our entire staff was greatly saddened to learn of his death.
John (our Asst Manager) travelled to Belize City yesterday to assist his travelling partner in making arrangements.
Our sympathies go out to his wife and family.
Vicki and Butch

What a tragic thing, sympathies to the family. This happened to a person we knew last year in Bonaire. A point to bring up about this, make sure your travel/dive insurance covers reparation of remains back to your home country. Their insurance did not, so to add to the tragic loss, the wife had to cover the huge expense of a charter on her own.
