Tuesday I drove 580 miles from the Fur Peace Ranch to Hampton, South Carolina where Zach’s mom, Stephanie was to b interred. Zach has grown into quite the young man… he is carrying the weight well!

    “Each night when you look at the sky,do not see them as stars,but as porch lights safely welcoming your loved one home”. Love to Zach from Cousin Carol and the Chaney Gang.

    Very sad to hear. May she rest in peace.

    I just lost my 90 y.o. mom yesterday, so it is indeed a weight as most will know. She really had a full go-round, a strong faith to the end, and kept the doctors laughing with her stories until the final day. She was also a major volunteer for the disabled in her hometown.
    Given her business skills, Heaven is about to undergo a major reorganization!

    Your pride of and love for your son is powerfully evident, surely a great solace as he carries that weight.

    So sorry Jorma and Zach and family – my mom also died of cancer though she made it to her 80s – I think of her most days as I’m sure you will forever -
