On Sunday, July 30, Ed Siemienkowicz passed away, surrounded by family and friends who love him fiercely and dearly. We take some comfort in the fact that at the end, Ed was ready to go—ready to no longer suffer in pain. Through it all, Vanessa was at his side, holding his hand and telling him how much he is loved.
And now, this fund becomes a way to support Vanessa, who gave up her livelihood to become Ed’s full-time caretaker for the past 4 months. As executor of Ed's will, she also needs this fund to carry out Ed’s final wishes: to have his ashes scattered in 5 different places, including in Japan, where he spent 2 of the best years of his life.
If you’re sad, grieving and want to help in some fashion, this is one way you can do so. One of Ed’s last requests was to make sure Vanessa was taken care of. Please help make that happen.
