Default We have been Out of Commission

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.

Mark&Deb

Such a strong woman to go through all that she did and live a long life is a blessing. Now that she is resting, may I send my condolences to you and your family.

To Mark & Deb, My condolences to you and Mark's family. At least she is not suffering anymore. (That is what I thought when my Mum died in March this year.) Take care. Sincerely, Brenda in Vancouver

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