Subject: Re: Steve Mathews September 5, 2013


Hello Angel,  Iím sorry to inform you that the news you received today was correct.  He passed quietly around noon today.  I spoketo the nurses that were with him at the time and they said he went very quickly and was in no pain.  I last saw him yesterday and I could see that he was close to the end.  He had been deteriorating for the past week but he was still alert and fully aware of what was happening. 

It was sad to have him leave us but in the end it was the best solution to a bad situation and Iím sure heís in a much better place. 

I was busy running around most of the day so could not contact you earlier.  I did get to view the body before the funeral home picked him up and said my goodbyes.  

His legal people are now in charge of all the arrangements.  Steve wanted to be cremated and did not wish to have any celebration of life or memorial service.  I am not sure of the arrangements but will keep you posted when I learn more.  

Please pass this on to his other acquaintances and former co-workers.  I will try and pick up his laptop tomorrow and e mail everyone individually.
