Recently, my siblings and I had the unfortunate task of moving our mom into a long-term care facility.  As her zest for life diminishes, and the sparkle in her beautiful loving eyes is fading, we try to make every moment we have with her now special.  This is one of those moments.

Thank you Spryte. It really is bitter sweet. We never want it to get to the point where we have to care for them, but are grateful to be able to do it when the time does come. Difficult, yet gratifying. Love and hugs to you and your mom.

I am Brady Marshall's sister in law. I was at your Mom's and Dad Marshall's wedding. I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's struggle. I have many found memories of them in Slave lake camping and at Brady and Michelle's, know that I am thinking about her and sending you all my prayers

Thank you very much Denise for your kind words. It is very difficult, but with Lynn's passing maybe it is a blessing as she doesn't have to endure another broken heart. We miss him as well.

They always loved to dance. I am glad my Grandpa and Irene found the same passion for dancing in one another and were able to share it with all of us. I am glad to see and hear that she seems to be doing better. My love goes out to you and your family. Thank you for sharing this video. Beautiful.
