On the 30th of September I lost my compass. Mač was a successfull woman in every important way. I pray her legacy will live on in me, my siblings and her grandchildren. Her courage, her dedication to family and home will remain with us for always. As I bid farewell I find comfort knowing she is now free from a body which no longer allowed her to do the things she loved. She will continue to show me the way to the true north.
