Mark, Alan and Etta - May 2006

Just to let you know, Mark's dad passed away this afternoon around 2 PM. Mark and other family members were with him at the end. I'm so very grateful that Mark was able to make it to Florida to say farewell.
Funeral arrangements have not been determined yet - most likely Monday or Tuesday. In any case, it appears I'll be flying out to Florida on Monday morning sometime. I just have to find a flight and coordinate with Mark.
For all of you who have been with me during the ups and downs of this past year - thank you. Who would have thought we'd lose three parents (his dad, his stepmother, and my stepdad) in less than 12 months? I'm hoping that this is the last sorrowful chapter in our lives for a long time.
