She had amazing strength and resiliency. Despite her problems she didn't let things get her down. She's a shining example of the human spirit. Max is the same age as the girls and I loved our chats over the years about raising kids. She was a wonderful mother and did a fantastic job raising Maxi. I feel so sad for him but he's part Merme and he has his mothers strength. She will be sorely missed. tears tears tears

tears tears well said Bill
last time I talked to Merme a couple of months ago,, she was laughing and being silly,, she also knew her time was limited and only wanted to prepare Max and give him memories of her laughter and silliness.
I'm happy for her that she is no longer in pain,, and doesn't have to worry about dialysis, her heart, her discomfort on any level. Her Body is Whole now, her spirit soars, and her laughter is her music now in Heaven kissie :ding:
I too am looking for her newer address,, However I'm not sure anyone would be there,, as Max is more likely at his dads
Last Time I talked with Merme that is where Max was staying due to Merme Being so ill and In and out of the hospital so often.

Last time I spoke with Merme she had to stop several times to catch her breathe. Never had her latest phone number. I remember when I came out of that coma in 2009 my daughter ask me who Mary-El was I told her she said she had called wanting to know how I was and send her love. Not often I cry but I sure am now so bad I can hardly write. RIP my dear friend you are out of pain and walking tall among the angels you are missed so bad by all. tears

I just checked again, barb, it is just not been posted yet--I am thinking it might take a few days---we should check back every day or so--I would think it will be up at least a few days before her funeral. why

This is What we Ordered From the GardenHelper Friends ~ being sent to the funeral Home in Memory of Merme,
