IN LOVING MEMORY OF STEPHEN SIMMONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEPHEN January 26, 1974 - September 14, 2012 We never expected when you were diagnosed with "classic "lymphoma the last week of March 2012 we would be arranging your funeral service in less than six months. You were an avid runner with no previous significant medical history who worked to maintain good health in mind and body so you could provide for your wife, Rose, and son, Benjamin. After your eighth chemo treatment, the pulmonary function test, which you were unable to complete due to shortness of breath, lead to a new diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis in August. The progress made on curing your lymphoma was negated by your progressive shortness of breath. The smallest task you attempted presented an enormous challenge for your lungs. Your struggle to take in oxygen progressed from the use of home oxygen to a second hospital admission within a week on Sunday, September 2. The severe deterioration of your lung function compelled Rose and you to agree for you to be intubated on 9-7-2012. Sedated and on the vent, you were accepted by the University of Michigan Hospital for transfer. When the CCU physicians on 9-13-2012 advised Rose there was nothing more they could do for your medical condition, she agreed to have you taken off the vent on Friday, September 14. You are in our thoughts every day. May you rest in peace, Stephen. All our Love, Mom and Dad
