My father, Michael Steig, passed away on Wednesday, December 13, 2006 at 7:00 pm Pacific one month after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
This was the view from my father's hospital bed. Mike was a really good and loving father and was loving to the end. Physically he was not a strong man. He was sensitive and literally unsure on his feet. But he was a resolute man and that was his strength. He never questioned his faith, not in god, in which he didn't believe, but in higher things, like human dignity, and trust, and doing right. He's gone and I think he was probably satisfied with the legacy that he left and the way in which that legacy will live on.
