Sad Victoria Visit: May 30 to June 12
Eric’s mother, Dorothy Mary Elvidge Fletcher passed away on May 25, slipping away in her sleep. Although we will miss her terribly, this passing is a mercy, since she was suffering from very advanced Parkinson’s. Mum had a magnificent enquiring mind, was a genuine Lady, and loved to travel and experience the world. We’ll be in Victoria, assisting in the creation of a wonderful memorial, then helping to pack up the Victoria apartment, the Aria. Then we'll end our trip in Vancouver for our youngest goddaughter's high-school graduation -- a nice bookmark, with time spent celebrating a young life that's full of exciting promise.
