I wanted to let you know that my husband, Jim Steele, has passed on. He died on Thanksgiving Day eve November 24th of complications from his disease.
My husband was a mechanic and his talent and purpose in life was "to fix things." Unfortunately he wasn't able to fix his EC which he just couldn't seem to accept.
My daughters, son-in-law, his sisters, and I were able to spend his last day on earth sharing our memories and grief. While he wasn't able to interact with us, I believe he heard our every word and shared our tears and smiles. It was a great way to prepare him for eternally and us for our life without him.
Thank you all for the support and hope you have given us during our 10 month journey with EC. It was a godsend to me to find this site. God's peace and comfort and guidance to all of you as you continue this fight.
I ask a special blessing on the caregivers. I am convinced it is just as hard - if not harder - on you! I know it was for me.
