Bob & Carole Himes are retired and live in Panama City, FL. They have been associated with the Stills Disease through their Daughter Michele (Shelly) who was diagnosed with Stills in 1993. In 1998 Bob learned about our web site and joined the list to provide all the information to Shelly who didn't have a computer. On 31 Jan 1999, Shelly passed away from complications of respiratory infections due to her lowered immune system due to Stills. Bob & Carole decided to stay with the Stills group and made them part of their family to help any & all persons with Stills. They really Love their Stills Family!
