I just received an email from a friend that Steve (Gain) died this morning.  He was a member of HealingWell, and I had known him for about 3 years.  This is so very very sad.  My heart, love and sympathy go out to his family and loved ones for their tremendous loss. 
 
Steve, you will be missed for your knowledge, thoughtfulness, words of wisdom (always), being a friend and just always seemingly there when needed.  Hugs and Love Always, Teri
 
"Good luck to you and try not to worry."

Steve


"I had a massive heart attack on May 4, 2003.    Thru the course of diagnosis while in ER and catheterization it was determined that I had 3 arteries 100% blocked, 1 artery at 98% blocked and 1 artery at about 85% blocked.  I have EJ fraction around 20 and have had numerous echo-cardiograms to monitor heart function. I lost 60% of my heart that night. I cannot do what I used to but feel great.  In September of 04 I had an AICD implanted more or less to act as a saftey net for when my heart stops and have developed alot of arrythmia problems.  I also have two aneurysms.  One is on my ascending aorta and is distorting the aortic valve.  The other is an abdominal aortic aneurysm.  Both of which need to be repaired."

I'm so sorry, for you Teri and everyone else who knew Steve. I did not. In life, as my soon-to-be father-in-law says, "we all just a heartbeat away from eternity." Just have to do your best everyday, as positively as possible, with a focus on contributing as much as you can to life and the people you care about. God bless.

Steve was a wonderful person who cheered all who crossed his path including me and oh he talked so fondly of his daughters too. Yes I am sad crying tears  because though we will miss him here on earth Heaven will be richer with him in it and we need not ask why it happened but where can it lead. Yes and lift up his family and  kids too .Also lift up all others who knew him for  our hearts are breaking and we are crying to lose such a wonderful man like Steve.
Dear Heavenly father please lift up Steve gain family and his friends and close family on the HW board who knew him and put your arms around us letting us know it is ok and he is not in anymore pain and he is free from this dreaded Heart Disease. We all can listen and Steve will speak to us in someway or something will happen that makes us think of Steve. I am praying for his family and his kids and also the people who knew him and hold him close to their heart. Rest high on that mountain Steve you have done well.   Well Done Thy Good and faithful servant
you will be missed and we love you.

...you know what? Steve died as he lived: a pacifist who superceded all boundaries but for those of humanity. I pray that all wish him Godspeed to his deserved reward, whatever each of our individual belief systems and our set of of alliances. Steve (rightfully) abhorred the artificial barriers to interaction that these divisive forces have created over time among all of us...."Tomorrow could be a day for smilin'...."

I didn't know Steve very well, either, but do remember his posts and that he was one of the good guys. I'm sure he is sorely missed by those daughters and all of his friends.


Happy Grandmommy to Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekiel

I was so sorry to hear this sad and shocking news.  I join everyone in prayers and condolenses to Steve's family and pray that he is in a better place now where there is no pain or suffering...and lots of German Shepard dogs.  God Bless you Steve and we are trying to smile through our tears as we know that is what you would want!  Gentle hugs, Pat

Thanks Pat for reminding me of that - what a happy thought, because Steve certainly did love German Shepherds.  Hugs, Teri

If yoou culd se me now don't be sad but be happy I am free from pain and  I am up here watching over each and everyone of you. IF yuy see me now and how wonderfulthis place is yu wuld want to be up here with me in a brand new body and no pain at all.

I know we all still miss Steve and think of him often but I am trying imagine him up[ in heaven and with some of his GSD that have gone on before him crossing rainbow bridge bringing some of his animals with him inot heaven is happy and like us  misses us we need to listen closely for I know Steve Gain is talking to us through angels and impartng on how we can make  each and every one of us a better person to serve man kind and to touch lives soi when we are gone someone can come along and mis us like we all miss this wonderful man.

I heard from Steve's wife earlier today and she told me that Steve "gained comfort and strength" from all of us as we did from him...we can't ask for anything more.

My best wishes to his family.  Hugs, Teri
