Our Grandson, Mark Ellis!

Will the pain ever go away?????? This is my grandson, Mark. This was our last visit together when he and girlfriend, Nesha came to visit us on our rv lot in Pahrump, NV. Mark was a wonderful grandson and will missed by us forever. There is going to be a fund set up for him so his mother, my daughter Chyrisa can get his memorial/funeral and other obligations taken care of. Let me thank you all, our friends for their prayers for all of us. We are grateful. Love, Laura and Gordon Posted by Picasa

Our house is in the middle of the city. It is right in the heart of the Castro area. This is the Gay Pride Flag. Most people are nice in this area. It is a great place to live if you like city living. Posted by Picasa

It is very wet and not much sun in the front of our house. Here you can see how moldy the chairs are....the spindals were just liked that but with lots of elbow grease and bleach we cleaned them pretty well. My daughter-in-law, Mariam and her friend Sarah helped us all day yesterday. We worked from 10 to 4pm. We are going back this morning to work again. Padriac is going to meet us in the city and bring his power washer. Wow are we lucky to have him help us out. Posted by Picasa
