Mark's grandfather passed early this morning surrounded by family. I feel so sorry Mark's mother, as she has lost her mother, brother, and now her father all in the last year and a half. I remember the pain I felt when my father passed away. It was a pain I have never felt before, and have not felt since. I also remember thinking that "part of me" was lost. One of the two people responsible for ME was gone forever. I know when I lose my mother, although I will be surrounded by loved ones, I will somehow feel alone. Knowing this, I feel for her in a special way. Both people responsible for HER are gone. My wish for her is that she knows I truly care for her, and am so PROUD to call her my mother-in-law. She is a strong strong woman who would do anything for anyone, even sacrificing herself. I pray the Lord provides her peace and comfort, and loving people for support. I know the next few weeks and months will not be easy for her, so please continue to pray for her and her family. Thanks to ALL OF YOU who left such sweet messages last night. They did not fall on deaf ears.
