Mr Markey and family, I never knew your wife but I Understand the suffering she went threw in her life with migrane headaches, suffering myself for almost 30 yrs. She must have been a remarkable brave woman to hide the pain and go on with her life, She is now out of pain, and to pass on my condolences to your entire family. I would have liked to have met her.

somebody who cared....
