Unconditional Love and Forgiveness

Lora, Cindy and Marcia Marin

After many years of reflecting on the lives of Lora, Marcia and Cindy, my three sisters-in-law who died from Huntington’s disease (HD) complications, one trait the four Marin siblings had in common  (I must include my John in this statement)  was their capacity to love unconditionally.  Especially when they graced their love on their father, John Marin Sr. who was an absent, abusive father.       

These four siblings never passed judgement and accepted others as they were.  I thank Lora, Marcia, Cindy for allowing me to witness their acts of kindness and teaching me how to be more forgiving, because to love deeply, one must forgive.  Loving unconditionally is just one of the many attributes I witnessed from these three wonderful ladies.

We Can Never Lose HOPE…..
