I have sad news to report….in December Einstein’s Mom became seriously ill and had to be admitted to the hospital and unfortunately right after Christmas she passed away. It has been an extremely stressful time for E and Red over the past two years with his Dad’s passing and helping his Mom deal with the loss and then her decline in health and now her passing. I know many of you have gone through similar circumstances over the years and can understand. Please keep E and Red in your prayers during this very difficult time

So sorry to hear this. No matter how old you are, the loss of a parent is very difficult. The loss of my mother several years ago was devastating for me even though we knew it was coming. I was so torn as I did not want her to go yet I could not stand to watch her suffer.

My deepest sympathies to Einstein and Red. My thoughts are with them as they go thru the difficult days ahead.

Losing a parent is very difficult and losing two in a relative short time just intensifies the pain. Hoping lots of love from friends will give Einstein and Red the comfort they so need at this time. God bless.

So sorry to hear this. I know they've been through heck these last couple of years. May they take comfort knowing she is at peace now with his dad.

So sorry to hear this. My deepest sympathies to Jim and Val. I wondered why he had not checked in. I know they don't post often anymore - but he usually pops in for the Sailaways!

May they find the peace and comfort they need at this time.

Very tough times indeed, and more than that..long distance issues, and work for him; as well as Valerie having to cope with being a "trip /on the road again" supportive in all ways wife...I don't envy them the last 4 years at all......

our thoughts and prayers are with them as they get back on this next hamster wheel of dealing.....been a long time luckily for Mark and I with this platter...but their hamster wheel of both sides of the Pond have been a wreck indeed...

again condolences on their loss....Joanne and Mark
