On December 19th and 20th of 2017 two members of our family died. At the age of 90, Eileen Oakman, Pauline’s mother died of a tumor in her upper jaw, and in distressing circumstances, Dorothy McShane, Pauline’s older sister died totally unexpectedly. Within 24 hours Pauline lost her two closest friends. What follows is my reflection on their lives.
Pauline joins me in thanking all who have expressed sympathy and support. Your love and prayers sustain us.
