Hi everyone. Just a quick post to let you know I am back. I had just returned from having wintered in the Domincan Republic with my daughter and son-in-law for four months. My beloved son-in-law was killed just a few weeks after I got back to Canada. It has been a very tragic time for our family and the many, many friends the kids had in Sosua and in Canada. My granddaughter and myself flew down as quickly as we could get out of the country to be with my daughter who was being cared for by dear friends and we were joined there by other close family members who came in on different flights. There is strength in numbers and we are coping with our grief as well as can be expected under the tragic circumstances. We appreciate all the prayers and thoughts of everyone. Mark was much loved by his family and his communities both in the DR and in Canada. We pray that justice will prevail.
Sad Days In The Dominican Republic
It is with my deepest sympathy, I add my prayers for each of you who loved Mark. When the pain becomes too much to bear, lean on the love that he had for each of you, and take comfort from the loving memories. May God bless you all.
