From Mrs. Eggbeater On November 7th, Ed passed away in his sleep. I am still searching his records to find the letter that he had written to send to his groups after his death. As soon as I find it I will post it for you all to read his last real thoughts. I do know that he very much appreciated all that you here have done, and are doing. I am sorry to say that at the time of the elections, he was not able to completely understand the magnitude of the outcome, yet, I am sure that he would have been very pleased to see his country turn back to one that is fair, honest and compassionate.
He never once complained about his illness, he never once became angry.
A small bit if information about his life that he never liked to share with most people.
Ed was raised in a strick conservative family. His political theory early in his life was one of a right wing conservative. Somewhere along the line he found and accepted Christ into his life, he began to look at who he was and how he treated others around him. Slowley he changed his outlook, one from what can he do for himself, to what could he do to make others realize the love, and the success that he himself had found.
I know that he will miss those that touched his life. You here at the underground are among those that helped guide him in his efforts to be a better person. I think that in some ways, he registered here to try and than each and every one of you for staying with the fight to create a better world.
Again, when I am able to find his letter to all those that touched him, I will post it for you to read. That is what he wanted, that is what I will do.
as Ed would have said if he could. God Bless you all, and keep up the fight.
Mrs. Eggbeater. I remember reading your husband's post informing us about his illness. He had a great outlook, I thought, and even from that one posting I felt that I got a sense of what he was like as a person. I am sorry that he didn't fully appreciate the results of the election, and even more sorry that you have lost him as your life's companion. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and please consider posting here as a member someday in the future. We would love to hear from you. Peace.
There are no words that can help to soothe your soul. Just know that there are many here who are thinking of you and who will also miss reading Egg's posts. Thank you for keeping in touch. Hugs BW925 :grouphug:
I'm sorry to hear about his passing. He seemed so at peace with the inevitability of his death. I hope that brings you much comfort. I will keep you in my prayers as you go through the difficult process of grieving.
So sorry for your loss. What a wonderful glimpse into Eggbeater's life and thoughts. Both of you just added to bringing back my faith in America. I didn't know him, yet I am very sad for the loss of such a nice gentleman. My sympathy and best wishes to you and your family.
I did not know your husband, but his posts were always quite poignant. When I read the news on another thread this morning, I sat on the couch and cried for about 5 minutes. When one of our own at DU passes, it touches us all personally.
101. What a wonderful post in the midst of your loss
Thank you for letting us know. I'm so sorry your companion will no longer be right beside you to pass along all the outrageous/scary/funny things we say here on DU. I hope you'll feel comfortable enough here among us to visit more when your world is no longer turned so upside down. And I'm truly sorry you are going through this during the holidays. Much love and good luck to you and yours.
I'm so sorry to hear that Ed has passed. I'm so sorry for what this must surely mean for you, too. I was just thinking of him yesterday and wondering how he was. Thank you for letting us know. May you be surrounded and comforted by those you love.
Mrs Eggbeater. He was truly an inspiration here and we are sorry to lose him, even more sorry to know that you and your family have lost a loved one. I was struck by his humble dignity and his courage in speaking of his illness and, still, his desire was to see his country regain its dignity and courage.
I'm sure Ed would be exceedingly happy and proud to see OUR America return, and the dark America of the Neoconservatives go the way of most historical authoritarian societies - rejected by those who revere Liberty over security.:patriot:
May your husband rest in peace. It is amazing how much accepting the true message of Christ makes you a liberal - I think He would like it here, and I'm glad your husband is now in the arms of the Lord.
My thoughts go to you and your family also, that you may be acomfort to each other in this difficult loss.
152. Ellen, I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband.
I had kept him in my thoughts and prayers ever since I read that he was sick. May it be comforting to you to know that he is now at peace with the Lord. Sending prayers for you and your family. And please, always know that you are among family here. You can turn to us anytime for strength, a shoulder to lean on or cry on, to help you get through anything, any time of day or night. We all care and we are here for you. :hug:
167. I hope you know how much eggbeater touched our lives
He showed his dignity with his disease and his constant pushing us to keep fighting the good fight touched me. I hope I'm as able to touch lives and create good in the last years of my life. I'm going to believe that he knew that we had won this battle. Most of us knew well before the election. Thank you for posting and I'm sorry for your and our loss.
