My stepmom, who I lovingly refer to as Mermom, passed away on January 8th. Her name was Reenie, and she was the most amazing woman I've ever known. She lived a life of love & adventure, traveling and making friends everywhere she went. Eventually she met my dad (her pirate!) and they made a life together in St. Augustine, Florida. They even worked together at the Fountain of Youth. She was a park guide and he was a blacksmith. Reenie was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma in winter of 2016, and has spent the last few years remaining positive as ever while fighting against a monster with no face. She fought the good fight, and although she is no longer here she will remain a strong role model for anyone who needs one. Instead of flowers for her memorial, my father has requested that we all make donations to the American Cancer Society in her memory. Please help and donate if you can. I know that so many of us have been touched by this awful disease in some way. We will never stop fighting for those we love, and we are honoring their memories. Thank you.
