Updated info
Dear Friends,

With permission from Dee Vaage, I send to you this updated info about Pastor Bob's death. These are the exact words we received from her:

"I wanted to let you know that we received some information from Bob's autopsy that explains his cause of death. Evidently Bob had an occlusion (some sort of blockage) to the main artery that supplies blood to the small and large intestines, his intestines became necrotic (died) and he started to bleed internally. This caused him to go into shock. He did NOT have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. We're not sure what caused the occlusion (cancer, scar tissue, blood clot) but there was probably nothing we could have done differently."

Sorry for another email, but I forgot to include this info in the previous one. --- Lynn Egesdal
