I have been trying to keep up with all the questions and requests for ECO parts during the last few months, but I need to tell you what is happening. I apologize for not responding, but this has been the worst year of my life. About this time a year ago my oldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer. They did everything they could, but she pass away in early June this year. Shortly, my son, had a stroke and he passed away on August 19th. Two children gone in less than 90 days.

My only remaining daughter has been handling all of this and I have been trying to help with all the details and the expenses.

I want to help you, but please give me a little time to get back to normal. Just send me a another email if you don't hear from me.

So sorry to hear of your tremendous losses Jack.
Parents should not outlive their children.
God bless you and the rest of your family in this time of sorrow.
I think everyone can wait until you recover your emotions and affairs.

What a heartfelt outpouring of concern and support for Jack from the Old Gas crowd.

Jack...Donna and I are also thinking of you, your wife, and your daughter as you all deal with these tragedies. I know you've already been through a lot in your life, but these most recent months have to be an almost unbelievable test for you. As others have said, don't worry about emails or even filling orders right now. It's time to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Your friend, John

Jack...so sorry to hear about your loss. Life is so fragile. At any moment all that we think is normal can be suddenly lost. The death of a loved one, a divorce, children or grandchildren going through difficult problems in their lives. And we are so attached so intertwined to the lives of our family members and friends. When those things overtake us everything else is pushed way back on the priority list. We are busy just trying to keep our heads above the water. All that is understandable. The loss of a child goes beyond my ability to comprehend the grief you must be going through Jack. There are some things that happen that we do not have answers. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you Jack as you pass through this valley. I pray that the Lord will hold you in his hands as well as all the rest of your family,
Thoughts and prayers,
Steve
