Tag Eckles passed away July 26, 2009. On his behalf and in my own name, I would like to express my gratitude to all who supported us during this difficult stretch of our journey: friends and family, healers and health care professionals, the Red Dog crew, my colleagues at the University of Alaska Southeast - everyone who donated time, services, prayers, goods, money, expertise, compassion and love.
Tag's last words were: "Thank you for everything. I love you." That says it all.
