Sadness from Marko

Dear members,

I hate to have to write this but my mom passed away yesterday. I'm kind of a private person so I wasn't sure I should post this, but I wanted members to know why they won't see much of me over the next week or so.

I'll likely peek in from time to time but I will be on much less for the next 8 days.

Please PM any of the mods if any issues come up.

Thanks in advance -

Marko

Marko my condolences to you and your family! Its never easy loosing those that are closest to us! When I lost my father I found some comfort in reading Psalm 23...

As I am sure you already know your extended family here will be with you through this terrible time! If you need to talk we are here..

My regards
Cindy
