Sad news - Eliane Marks

For those of you who have met Elton (user ID sstrout) and Eliane Marks, I am very sorry to say that Eliane Marks passed away last Friday.

May she rest in peace.

From Elton: Because friends were important to her, there will be a ceremony celebrating her life on Monday, May 19th, at 6:00PM.

The location is:

Dignity Memorial
3520 East Washington St.
Colton CA, 92324

--------------------

I plan on being there on Monday.

Wow. I'm shocked and speechless. She was a fine woman who loved life and the world is a little bit sadder without her in it.

My condolences Elton. I didn't know Eliane, but she must've been a good woman if she was with you. I hope you can share many fond memories with friends at the service.

OH NO!

That is really saddening news. My wife and I spent some time at their home for a Tech Session, and she was very nice to be around.

Elton, our hearts go out to you in this time of grief. Cannot imagine how you are going to cope.

Re: Sad news - Eliane Marks

I rode down yesterday to pay my respects.

The room was packed. Testament to all the friends Eliane had made throughout her life.

Beautiful celebration of her life. They had a couple of TV screens where they were showing pictures of her and Elton from several trips etc.

Unfortunately I did not stay too long since I wanted to head back. Got home just before 3 AM.

Re: Sad news - Eliane Marks

Elton,

I can't imagine what you are feeling. My heartfelt sympathies go out to you.

As Raffy said, there was standing room only in the chapel and many people spoke of their love and respect for Eliane. I hope in time your faith brings you peace.

Re: Sad news - Eliane Marks

I would like to thank you all of you for the kind messages and thoughts.
She was my best friend and also wife too. It's hard to get better. I will miss her in each ride for now on.

Thank you.

For those who are asking about the Eliane Marks Memorial Fund and how to donate to contribute on the fight of Depression, I just put a portal to our site that will give you some information and lead you to Loma Linda University Behavioral Medicine Center:

and click on Eliane Marks Memorial Fund.

Thank you for your care.
