OK, so - obviously - B is not the author.....it's tech challenged Mary Pat (who is hoping Marti-my-Mentor will accept the invite to co-author with me...but NO PRESSURE) who decided we all needed to come back here. Yeah, I'm a Mack Truck.....but Marysue mentioned what a comfort it was to be able to have the support of everyone via the Caring Bridge site and I thought "ya know, she is 200% right! Marti and B need that too, should they decide to participate.....
We all love B, we all love Marti, we all wish we could be there in person to hug the Dicken's outta them. This Caring Bridge thing is a terrific tool.....so here goes....
(Thanks to Nilson for the photo.....by the way, LOL, YOU dug it up - you have mad internet skills - but I had it PRINTED and mailed it to HIMSELF to be autographed :-) one copy for you and one for me)
If you go to the "Gallery" you will see three pretty pictures of the Flowers that arrived at the Boyle home this afternoon. The Sunflowers were "addressed" to Marti because she IS Sunshine.......the Multi-colored were "addressed" to B from ALL "HIS " KIDS who are all over the world, but who think of him lovingly more often than he would imagine......and the White bunch is addressed to them both so that they can gaze upon beauty and feel the love in at least THREE locations in their home. The following message is from Marti:
Hello dear NPC “kids”....Thank you from both "B” and me, for thinking of us and sending your love and support in the form of the beautiful flowers that arrived just a short time ago...we are both touched by your thoughtfulness, and also by the emotional lift you give to both of us, now and in the past. “B” had a big smile on his face when I brought the flowers into his room, and a tear in his eyes when he saw your message.....I am watching him get stronger, today, than he has looked in days and days, and need you all to know, once again, how much you all mean to him....I am so honored that you have allowed me to share in the special bond you all and Jack have with each other...I care so much about all of you, too....be well, be happy, and we will keep you all close in our hearts, as ever..... all our love,Marti and “B”
