Most of you haven’t known but for over a couple of weeks, my wife Helen has been very ill and in the hospital.
It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this blog. Unfortunately my partner and love of my life for the past 37 years will not be coming home to me. The doctors this morning had a conference with me and my son Jason and let me know that her liver was just too far gone and just was not functioning at a level high enough to get her other organs to continue working.
They had to put her in a paralytic state just to regulate her breathing. She never was aware from the moment she went into surgery 17 days ago and always insisted to me that I, if anything happened, let her go. So today July 4, 2013 we took Helen off the machines and she passed away this afternoon.
I want to thank those of you who knew for your kind prayers and wishes to me and I know Helen heard them all and appreciated them too.
(P.S. Steve here…..in memory of Helen we will not be having blogs for the next few days…..please check back early next week. Thanks)
