The love of my life died on July 24, 2004 of complications due to liver failure. He only learned of his Celiac Disease a year ago. Because, of Celiac, though, his liver was more easily comprised when he took pain medication with codeine, due to a surgery.
I placed an awareness ad in our local Blues Society paper, but, because of a computer glitch the whole ad was printed extremely badly. I will, probably, use this sites information next year. So, now, I don't feel quite so hopeless.
