Ah, condolences to all. As death may be eventual for all of us, we hope to delay it further through Steve’s research and collaboration of great minds.
Is there an address for donations?

Steve Coles, MD, GRG founder, experienced cardiac arrest in Scottsdale AZ at 8:50, Dec 3, about 45 min ago. Scottsdale is where Alcor is, and Steve had traveled there last week to be close to the cryonics foundation.Many of you will share my sense of loss and grief. I knew Steve for more than 25 years.Steve died very peacefully of pneumonia, secondary to his pancreatic cancer, and cryopreservation was begun immediately. His wife has been present throughout the process, and has been a great support to all.For those wondering what you can do, I have two suggestions:1) Don’t call right now– everybody will be very busy the rest of the AM, and tired for the rest of the day. Messages on GRG are of course appropriate.2) Donations to the family for the cryopreservation are needed in any amount. Steve arranged for some scientific study if his own cryopreservation process, but the grant for that won’t be enough to cover costs. If you have felt GRG helpful in you lives, you may express that gratitude directly by preserving the founder’s brain into the future. I cannot think of anything more appropriate. Certainly don’t send flowers!Thanks again, and sorry for the bad news. We knew it was coming. But then we know that for all of us.Steve Harris, one GRG founder.
