A phone call jarred Martha Weaver from a fitful sleep at 2 a.m. and it took a few seconds for the news to filter through her early-morning haze.
The caller, who identified herself as a nurse at St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo, said that Weaver's 64-year-old husband had just died, two days after being hospitalized with heart trouble.
When Weaver and her daughter, Cmell, 35, had left Ben Weaver just a few hours earlier, his spirits were good, his condition improving. In fact, the nurses were arranging to move him out of intensive care.
Now on the short drive from their Somis home to the Camarillo hospital, Martha and Cmell (pronounced Camille) Weaver were arranging for a funeral.
