Sorry to all of our cruisemates friends - we haven't been ignoring you. As you all would recall Mark's mom had femoral bypass (she came thru good) then amputation of a few toes a few days after that (came thru good) but then she suffered another stroke & she passed away this past week. It has been a long long week. Had 37 people @ our home for food on Thurs, 65 on Fri!! I am tired! This was a woman who had her 1st stroke @ age 30 while pregnant w/child #4, suffered 2 more strokes after that & 2 miscarry & then had Mark & then had Lee (raised a total of 6 children on the farm) & then now at the age of 81 suffered her 4th & final stroke. She is in a much better place as we know.
My sincerest sympathy to you and your family. Keep the precious memories close to your heart.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“

It sounds as though she lived a long and fruitful life. I know you'll have those memories of her forever.
