Sad News to report.

Postby Modelmaker on Fri Mar 31, 2017 2:10 am

Hello Guys, it is with profound sadness and extreme emotional distress that I announce that on Tuesday March 28th , my wife Karen has suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. She was my whole world. We were married for 14 years, she was also the inspiration for some of my modeling projects. I know life will go on but It wont be the same without her......Gary

So sorry for your loss! It is never easy to lose someone that you love and is part of your life, but that part of your life with her can never be taken away from you. My thoughts and prayers are being sent your way!

Thanks Guys, from the time she collapsed on Monday night until she passed was 18 hours, despite the best efforts of the Paramedics of the City of Brookfield where we live to the nurses and Doctors at both Elmbrook and Froedert Hospitals. Most of our friends and family are stunned and dumbfounded as to how this could happen so fast....the Doctors at Froedert Hospital which is a level 1 Trauma center are baffled as to why this happened, so they asked me if they could have an autopsy preformed to hopefully find some answers....I received the preliminary report from the M.E's office last night. It was startling to say the least but they have not yet been confirmed....that may take up to 16 weeks to get some results back....but the report goes a long way in explaining a lot of things....Gary

Thanks Guys , the grief i'm feeling is at times overwhelming , especially when one of my wife's best friends who is taking it as hard as Hard as I am tells me to FO when I reach out to her to help her grieve....I thought my reaching out to her would help us both , obviously I was wrong....it was a slap in the face and a kick to the nether region at the same time, or as another friend described it and emotional Stabbing....and yes it did hurt, I since cut all contact with this person...per her wishes the ball is now in her court to remain friends....Sorry about my venting....Gary

HI Guys, Got the ME's final report on My Karen's passing. The cause is Complications of Metastatic Breast Cancer, causing Multiple organ failure. Knowing the cause gives me closure but dont make me feel much better .....I miss her so Much.....and right now even 2 months later it is hard to focus on stuff.....I'm taking it day by day.....Gary
