Hi there friends and family.  Gary Steinhofer finally lost his battle with heart disease, and passed away of a massive heart attack at home.  Most of you are already aware of the mighty struggle he dealt with.  He had multiple heart attacks, multiple angiograms, multiple angioplasties these past few months and kept on ticking!  Unfortunately, so do the medical bills.  Even with insurance, co-pays and deductibles add up so quickly.  Gary just had another heart attack November 1st and had an angiogram/angioplasty and had another angioplasty just a few weeks ago.  He was also in the hospital last December with the same thing!  The bills just keep adding up.


In addition to his heart problems, he had advanced Parkinson's Disease, and had brain surgery/chest implant done shortly before his heart attack last December.


His little granddaughter, Brianna, is the light of his life, and she misses her Papa so bad.  When he was in the hospital she brought him pillows, stuffed animals, cards, and band aids to put on his heart.  She told everyone that "Papa's heart is so, so sad!"  Now Brianna knows he is a star way up in the sky, and she can see her Papa at night when she looks at the moon and the stars.  I think Santa might bring her a telescope to help her find Papa!


Whatever you can do to help this wonderful family is greatly appreciated.  Gary defied all odds for a long time, but now we need your help to get the family back on their feet while he is up in heaven fishing for the big walleye!


On behalf of the family, we thank you from the bottom of our heart.
