A Very Sad Time
Posted on July 4, 2013 by Dan Willinger

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.

I know that even with the Collection there, the house will be a lot more empty. I am so sorry for the loss.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Helen is still with me and will never leave. She guided and helped me for well over half of my life and will continue to do so as My and her son Jason's angel. She was a true gift to me and the world .

Helen was a dear friend to both JET and myself. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. For those who are interested, we have dedicated our Friday blog to Helen this week. There was something special in her greeting every time we got to see her.
