February - Leslie's 50th - maggiekelstrom

Mark threw Leslie a 50th birthday party at their DCR (Dead Chicken Ranch) barn. It was such a wonderful party, not only because we celebrated Leslie, but also because we all knew it would be Mark's last party. The DCR barn was his baby...he made it such a special place, as he did the ranch in general. He loved entertaining in the barn, and he  really enjoyed this party: he danced and smiled til the very end even though he must have felt tired.

I was so glad I could share all these photos with him and all those close to him. I sent them to him and he had them on a slide show on his computer which I heard he often watched in his final days. These are not all the photos, but the better ones I think. Hope I did not leave anyone out...

Mark left us about 2 months after this party...
