When I got the phone call on Saturday morning at 6:40 am to hear that MY MOM had passed, I was saddened at first, to lose the last member of my life who shaped me to the person I am today but I was happy to know that you were in a better place with your Husband Stan,
Stan Borowski ( Stan the Man ) June 1st , 2007,at .87, who's hand size matched the size of his heart, married to MY MOM for 23 years .
My Dad Garry Hurst , June 18th , 2008 at 84 gave me my optimism, and strength to say if my Dad can do what he has done , after having Polio as a boy , I can do anything
Lorraine Hurst ( Todd ) Aug 1st , 2014 at 90, helped my Dad ( 46 years ) with all his projects, travel, many years in Florida and care as his Polio got worse with his one good leg started to weaken as he got older.
After I got off the phone I realised I needed to be closer to MY MOM. I went over to Mark Haven and could see you at peace through the window so I could say goodbye.
Thank you MOM for all your love and guidance for the past 94 years.
I Love You, Rest in peace. Your Son Ken.
