Mark's Dad pasted away on Feb. 17th, 2009. It was a little bit of a shock but not so much. We were down with him the weekend before Thanksgiving and again over the Thanksgiving Holiday. It was a good time for the family. We were all together and grew more as a family unit. This is the side of Mark's family that we just met 4 years ago. While we were there his dad got a call that he wife, who had been in a coma, had passed away. The blessing was that he was not alone getting this message. Since this time he has been very down and depressed and he is not healthy. When we got the call from Angela about his passing, it made sense. The blessing from this situation is that Mark finally got to meet the third sister from his dad. Her name is Pilar, her husband Marcus, and two boys Jailyn and Malik. They are all stationed in Germany and flew in the same day we got to Houston. We all meet at the viewing, and then went to dinner. It was so much fun to get to know this fabulous woman and her amazing family. Mark was so happy when we got home to finally know "all his sisters!" The joke while we were all together was, " do you think there are more of us out there somewhere?" Our boys and her boys are right around the same age so they played played and played the whole 4 days. It really was great! We only wish this all happened under better circumstances. We did make an agreement that we were going to get together more often and for good times! Mark and I and the boys are already excited about this vacation even though nothing has been planned. Here are some pics from the time we were down in Houston.
