I just wanted to tell you all that my sister passed away last night, in her apt. It was from a complication of chemo, cancer and depression. I had joyful plans to return to your galleries this week---something I always love doing---but I won't be able to for a while. (And there are some bdays coming up (I didn't forget, rod!), but I'll get to them after a while...there's so much to do now.) It was sudden, but in a way very expected. I just had that feeling, this week...) I'll write more about my sister, as a memorial. But for now, I wanted you all to know the reason for my absence, and to share the news w/ all of you. My sister was a light so bright and deep, and we were very, very close...she battled so much in the previous year or so,, and I hope she has peace now. Thank you all for your support in these months, I've appreciated every bit of it, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Love and peace, mark

Not the news I had expected. I am so very sorry, Mark. I know how much she meant to you. Your sister couldn't have asked for a better, more caring brother. I know you've been under a great deal of stress lately, so please do take of yourself. You are in my heart.

OH DEAR!! I am so sorry, Mark. That wasn't the news I had hoped for. I am so very sorry for your loss. She has been battling for years over and over again and you have been by her side all the time. Must have been so hard for you too. I guess it is maybe the best for her to finally find peace. You are in my thoughts, Dear Mark. Hugs and love! Helle.

dang nab Mark, i'm so lost for words on your loss of your dearest sister my friend. I know you and her were close by the way you chat with us here. this year has been the worst year ever I have went through seeing and hearing tragic news all the time. certainly not the news I was wanting to hear. dang, it's gotta be tough on you bro. we always say the phrase she is in a better place right now and she is, but that does not sooth the pains and emotion in loosing a dear loved one bro. i'm going to work on a image for you for her. already have the idea in mind so should not take more then a few hours. and hope it is appropriate for you. my heart cries for you Mark. write me when you heal a bit, I won't bother you at this time. God bless/Steve

Egad, I'm so disappointed to read the above. I was hoping that your sister would enjoy a remarkable recovery despite her various ailments, which are hard to beat, even in the best of circumstances. A good soul as you indicated, may she rest in peace. I was hoping for better times for you and her, more so considering your physical problems, among other things. Who said life is fair? Take care, my friend.

Damn.... I'm sooooo sorry to read of your loss, Mark. You are in my prayers, buddy.. And don't worry about any birthday dedi's - you have enough on your plate dealing with this. Even when it's expected, it still rips a part of your heart away. Your sister is at peace, and I hope you are able to find healing in time. But it does take time, and lots of support from family and friends. Bless you buddy, and take all the time you need. We'll be here for you when you return.

Who my siblings were is such an important part of who I am. The loss of someone long-known, so close, is such a personal wound, not really something outside of us. I’m so sorry. I’m holding both of you close.

I'm late to the galleries today; it was a crazy day, so I'm just seeing this here, but I replied elsewhere already. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I wish you peace and gentle healing. Take all the time you need. You are in my heart and on my mind. ((((((hugs))))))

How very sad this is for all who loved her, dear Mark. Especially if you have shared a lot with each-other in this life, this is a big shock. I wish you all the courage, hope and confidence you need, dear friend. Give your grief time to process, even though the loss will always remain, time will eventually take the edge off. God bless you. You were and are in my mind, even though I couldn't be present here lately.

My condolences to you and your family. May her memory always be a blessing to you.

In earlier days I tried to encourage and comfort people in such situations. Nowadays I‘m simply lacking the words (and possibly the faith). All words seem so flat and empty snd all I can do is express my deepest condolences with you and hope and wish, that your pain eases soon and you will find new joy and keep the good memories of her. I‘m with you in my thoughts.

You have my most heartfelt sympathy. I lost my brother, five years younger than me, and it's an empty hole that aches for a very long time.

Mark, I've no words to express my feelings, as i already told you! But i know how you feel! I didnt't expected this. I send my condolences and my love deeply to you and i wish you much strenght to go through this terrible loss and this hard times. Lynne has been always fighting since so long now and always had been a winner! I was really waiting that she could win, once more! And Mark, You always stood by her deeply and swith all your love, along her long illness, but She is in peace now and finally in tranquility, but wherever she is, Mark, she will continue embracing you and sending her bright light, as always, to you. You both have been always in my prayers and in my heart deeply. I send my condolences to all the family and PLEASE take much care of you now! Much love to You and the biggest Hug.

I feel for your loss and have knowledge of the pain since I lost my half brother recently from the effects of the treatment for cancer. I just recently went to visit his grave. I did not go see him while he was still alive because of the covid19 thing

I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I have been absent from the Gallery and just found out today. I hope the weight of grief and legal necessities are starting to lift and you can get some rest and remember your sister in the good times. It may sound odd but I am glad she was at home surrounded by the things she loved when she died. I wish there was something I could do to ease the pain but only time will really help. Just know I am thinking of you.
