Sad news: Ilene has lost the battle with oral cancer. I share friends locally and we all are suffering at the loss of our beloved. Fortunately, Ilene is now free from her suffering.

Peace to all.

Mark,

My heart goes out to you my friend, as you said, she is at peace now, free from pain.

Life is a journey my friend, with a beginning and an end for us, it is the time we have with those we hold dear that make life so sweet, yet so painful when that journey ends. I have faith that those who pass before us help prepare our way when our own journey in this life ends, and a new one begins. It is because of this that I never say goodbye, rather "I'll see you when I get there".

Peace and love to you my friend.

Eric
