Marian (Irwin) Guion, my Mom, passed away on December 16, 2004, less than a year after her husband, and my Dad, Alfred Peabody Guion, passed away on December 28, 2003. I was living with her in California to take over from where Dad left off, caring for Mom. Christmas always takes me back to that year in my life when I lost both parents.
