Mark

Jul
7


Those of you who have read here regularly over the years know of my cousin Mark well. He passed away suddenly yesterday afternoon. More about my beloved cousin at another time.


If you’re here, checking here, after I’ve not been here so much, you also know Rodney. He had a very bad wreck almost two weeks ago and has been in the hospital, and is still in the hospital.

Thoughts and prayers for my cousin’s wife Sheryl and their son Madison, and Rodney, much appreciated. I will be back, I promise. It’s a rough time around here.

    So very sorry for your loss, I will be praying for Mark’s family. And I will be praying for Rodney to heal so he can come home, sounds pretty bad if he’s been there two weeks. :( You’ve got a lot going on, praying for you too.

    Oh Suzanne, I am so sorry to hear this! I remember all your stories of Mark, and how he would write funny comments to your posts. It is so hard to lose someone so close to you.
    And sorry to hear about Rodney’s accident. Wishing him all the best for a speedy recovery.
    Much love to you, and will be praying for you, for Mark’s family, and for Rodney.

    Hi Suzanne: I am very sorry to hear about the sudden loss of Mark and about Rodney’s wreck. I can’t imagine what it is like to have a farm with animals to tend, an Etsy store to run, and workshops to conduct while trying to cope with this terrible turn of life events. May you have lots of love and support during this awful time. Although we have never met, you’re in my heart.

    Suzanne, I’m so sorry for your loss. You must feel overwhelmed dealing with the grief on top of worrying about Rodney. As someone else mentioned, keeping the farm going and having Rodney in the hospital must be especially hard. I hope you have help. Prayers that Rodney will have a complete recovery and prayers of comfort for you and Mark’s wife and daughter. God bless you all.

    Suzanne & family: I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your cousin Mark. What a big shock. From your writings over the years, he was a great guy. I loved your writing about his Mom too. She was a character. And best wishes for recovery for Rodney. I had an accident in July but fortunately I wasn’t injured. Shalom.

I hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself as much as you can. You have so many dependent on you, family, animals, classes, etc. Stay strong. Prayers going your way.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
