Family illness break


     Absent for a while

Sadly life throws us a curve!  My dear Brother of 67 years young is battling Blood Cancer,
Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis, I have been with him for 3 weeks in Idaho, came home and now
returning to Idaho to stand by him in his fight in the Hospital.  I rarely do personal post, but wanted to let you know,
All prayers will help.  This was an eye opener for me not to sweat the small stuff!

Take care,
Marilyn


           I have returned home

               With a heavy and sad heart, my Brother Mike lost his fight against Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis.  We were a family of 9 growing up and to lose a brother has been very hard for me. 
I know tragedy happens to all of us sooner or later, and that the pain will get better.
  
The hard part is we had the same interest in antiques, collecting, and garage sales.  We did a lot together.  He took interest in my projects and was just there for me.  We went on our family reunion camping trips every year since 1985, never missing a year.  There were the family get togethers in Las Vegas, or Reno Nevada, the Miles and States between us never kept us apart.  
I am thankful for what we had and the memories, brother Mike you will be missed!

Thank you for your prayers and kind words,
Marilyn

You and your family are in my prayers. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer this summer. Hard times. You and your brother will be in my prayers. I hope for the best.

So very sorry to hear about your brothers illness. I lost my mother in 1998 from Multiple Myeloma. Sending my prayers and thoughts of you and your brother.
