Just wanted to let people know that 8 months to the day that Eddie had an autopsy the M.E.'s office called us & said he died from cardiac arrest from a small blood vessel bursting & stopping the flow of blood to his heart. The condition is related to Cardio Myopathy & often has no symptoms.
I believe that my son passed away either in his sleep or instantly or at least very quickly. I believe he didn't suffer & for that I am eternally grateful. His children & I cried, but are relieved to finally have the waiting for this piece of info over. There is no closure, but at least the question is answered because he wasn't even sick. It is still so hard to fathom at times. I miss him so.
 
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please tell Eddie I love him. In Jesus Name. Amen

If there ever could be a rainbow it would be that our children didn\'t suffer. I\'m happy you were able to have some of the questions answered. You are right, there is never closure, ony acknowledgement. Sending you hugs. Love Robin

It is a comfort to know what really happened and also that there really were no signs you could have seen earlier. How strange that our lives can take such a turn and we can all be fine one moment and gone the next. Makes me appreciate life so much more. I\'m so happy he did not suffer. I pray you and the children will draw some comfort from knowing the truth. Heart to heart, Danette

I am glad you\'ve found some peace. I just found out last night Matt wants me to get Doug\'s toxicology report. I had decided not to get it, wouldn\'t change anything, but Matt says no matter what it says it will bring him some peace so I will get it for him. Love ya, Sue

I am so glad you finally got the answers you were looking for. I went back and read an earlier note you sent me, explaining Eddie\'s symptoms, and now I\'m thinking they may not have been related? This seems to be something completely different... Again--I\'m so sorry--at least the waiting is over. Love, Cherie
