Lisa dear, having been with you to your support group I could picture it so well and I was crying with both you and Marc at the end. I have thought often of that nice Mennonite man and his pregnant wife. As for your letting people down, do not give that one another thought. You could never let any of us down--your words and your just being YOU fill us with admiration and love.

Indeed, you are a very special lady!! And, Marc is a special guy! Love you both, Sandy & family

It was really sad learning that the young Mennonite fellow was in hospice care. I remember him and his sweet wife and hoped for the best. It was good that Marc could go with you and learn how the members of your support group care for one another.


Your experiences throughout this process, especially with this last support meeting discussion, it's all so powerful.
I think the the opposite, rather than letting you down, I feel like you're the bravest person I know, and that we all fall short as a result. I'm glad Marc could be with you and experience your group's recognizing your courage to face all this.

love, hugs,
