December 31, 1947 - February 27, 2022
Dear Family and Friends It is with a great deal of difficulty to inform you that on Sunday last, February 27, 2022 Maggie Passed Away. She died from Lewy Body Dementia, that after 5+ years of fighting this disease she could no longer breathe. This began with memory issues and then transitioned to physical problems of not being able to walk, talk, dress herself and feed herself. She has been cared for in a Board and Care house, which is similar to an Assisted Living facility but with a maximum of only 6 residents. They did an excellent job of Caring for her. During this time I was able to take her for assisted walks and they allowed me to feed her. She received Physical exercise as well as Occupational therapy for a time to help her system to function. All during this time she was able to chew and swallow which allowed food to go into her stomach. During these years she lost a lot of weight and was down to under 60 pounds or 4 stone. However, during the last 4-6 weeks she was having pureed food to assist with her intake of nutrition. At the end, her system would no longer accept the puree. She was only taking in liquids, with electrolytes and other vitamins and supplements. What happened was that this was going into her Lungs and causing difficulty breathing. She took her last breath just before 8 pm Sunday. Amazingly through all this she still looked as beautiful as ever. The nurses couldn’t believe that she still had no wrinkles on her face and when she smiled the room litup. Because of the Dementia, I decided to Donate her Brain to the UCLA Brain Research Center. This was completed by Monday night. As you all knew, her charm, energy and class always came through. Her desire to make everyone happy and successful was evident in her personality and her management company. She loved speaking French and when we travelled to France, and around the world while playing baseball, a number of times, she always jumped in to help translate for all of us. She loved to travel and we were fortunate enough to be able to explore different parts of the world. As of this May we would have been married 20 years. Maggie was a special person and we will all miss her very much. Her style was classic as she was perfect fit for an Armani dress, Jimmy Choo shoes and hats were her made for her. I am missing you already as my partner in life, REST IN PEACE My love. Howard
