VEDIT Friends:

My father died unexpectedly this week Wednesday evening after collapsing from low blood pressure or other heart problem Tuesday afternoon.
He was 80. He had even had a full checkup and EKG the day before.
We retired as a pathologist about 10 years ago and had been working for me from home the past 8 years as an antispam analyst for our SpamStopsHere product.
He was even working early Tuesday morning when he IM'ed my staff that he wasn't feeling well and needed to stop. He rested during the day, his wife was
taking care of him, but collapsed 11 hours later. Considering his recent checkup, nothing serious was suspected Tuesday.

The obituary is listed here:


Funeral services are this Monday and since he served in the military (I was a kid when we were stationed in Japan), he will have a military burial at Fort Custer near Battle Creek, Michigan.

Hi Ted,

Verry sorry to hear your Father passed away. 80 is a good age.

Just shows that you never know when your time is to go.

Best wishes for you and your family.
