You made my day brighter
Susan and Kevin, what a delight to find your email in my inbox this morning. I don’t know if you remember me, my sister Pat and I were part of your group one time on the Mariner. We were so lucky she and I went on five cruises with Regent. The pandemic knocked the socks out of us. At the end of 2020 my husband was diagnosed with cancer. He passed away April 28, 2023, after a long and hard battle. We had been married 52 years. My sister Pat passed away the year before. I’m afraid my cruising days are over. But I can live vicariously through your newsletters. Pat and I did a cruise from Alaska to Japan. It was fabulous. You two have such an exciting life and I love that you share it with us.
