Updates on Antonio & Cesar - Sunday

Antonio moved back to his home on the island on Wednesday. He is confined to a wheelchair which was donated by the Behring Wheelchair Foundation as arranged by member Glenn Perry. The Sueno construction crew built a ramp and also some handles around his bed and bathroom to allow him to move about the house a little easier. He has to keep his leg elevated and has limited mobility in his shoulder. He receives a short treatment from Dr. Dan Gonzales daily for his leg. He has an appointment at the hospital on Dec 4 which may result in a surgery on his shoulder. Antonio is happy to be back at home with his family and sends his best to everyone.

Cesar's body was transported to Honduras where his parents and family reside. We hosted his family for a memorial service held at Sueno last Sunday. In attandance were his mother, wife, 7-month-old son, uncle, 2 cousins, nephew, and sister-in-law.
Thanks to all those who have expressed their love and concern by word and in the form of donations.

Tragic Boat Accident

Our hearts go out to all of those who were affected by Sunday's boat accident, particularly the two members of our staff. The accident claimed the life of Cesar Scott, who was our newly hired concierge. Cesar's wife and parents have been notified. Funeral plans are underway.

Boat captain Antonio Tepaz sustained severe injuries. He was air lifted to Universal Hospital in Belize, where he is currently being treated in Intensive Care for a lung contusion, a compound fracture in his leg, and a fractured shoulder. His doctor says his health is improving daily.

If you would like to make a contribution either Anotonio or Cesar's family, please contact Thank you to those who have sent cards and words of encouragement. They are being printed and delivered to Antonio and Cesar's family. Please keep all the victims in your thoughts and prayers.
This picture was taken by Susan Twachtman, sponsored guest of Suzanne Palmer just hours before the accident occurred.

Caye Chapel Champion

Member Glenn Powell and his buddies have a 9 year old tradition of competing for possession of a prized golf trophy that changes hands every three months after a quarterly golf tournament. The trophy is covered on all sides with plaques listing the locations of the tournaments and the proud victor of each.
Congrats to Jim Chapman, this quarter's champion! If you ask Glenn, he'll tell you he let Jim win in order to make Jim feel at home in Belize and at Sueno. Nice sales strategy Glenn, but we're not buying it!
Caye Chapel is a favorite among Sueno golfers. The private island/golf course is a short flight or boat ride from San Pedro.
Watch for crocs! Caye Chapel is closed for the next few months for renovations.

Baby Penny is here!

Jessica gave birth to a healthy baby girl at 3:00am this morning. Penny weighs 8 pounds and is 21 inches tall. Both mom and baby are doing fine.

They don't use bottles at this hospital (just one of the many bizarre aspects of having a baby in Belize) so Penny drinks her milk from a cup, like a big girl.

Thanks everyone for the love and support you have shown Jessica and I for the last nine months! Penny looks forward to meeting you when you are at Sueno next!
