Mariette is and always will be my sweet and dear mother, who brought me, daniel and my sister marie and brother robert, (who has also passed on to heaven), into this earth. i do not understand anything about this human life of ours, or why we suffer with the pain of loss of our fellow human beings, especially our mother, brother, father? the suffering of humanity is no joke, the suffering of my own family members is never to be understood by me? my spouse, debra brown, is a tough and no non-sense woman, who has a very difficult time showing her love to me, so living with her as a husband is very difficult, i mean, come on, debra, won't even take my last name in marriage, wow!! that is very abnormal oh well!!
