Early 40's (!), from Jersey, but my parents are from SXM. So I've been coming here since before I was born

I'm in my mid-50's from Rhode Island. My Dad started going to SXM in the late 80's as a guest of friends who owned at Royal Islander La Plage. He bought three weeks in March soon after. I started going in March '94, and my sister in March '96. We own two weeks at Royal Islander in you guessed it - March Dad still owns his 3 weeks and rents 8 or 9 weeks around them at La Plage. What a way to escape most of Winter - he's my idol! His next trip down is on New Years Eve, staying until 3/25.

While Royal Islander is home, my sister and I have also stayed at Port de Plaisance (displaced due to Royal Islander's closure from Lenny), Pelican, and Ocean Club.

We've met SO many longtime SXM friends through this message board - so grateful for TTOL As a matter of fact, I "met" my SXM buddy Gretchen here ages ago. We figured out via posting that my Dad is good friends with Gretchen's Mom via Royal Islander. We met in person the next trip and we're BFF's to this day

I am 69 from Albany NY, I hadn't posted this until now, but my wife Amy passed away from pancreatic cancer shortly after our return from our annual St. Maarten vacation. I am planning to return again in March with my friend Rita, whose husband Tom died just 8 days after our vacation 2 years ago. Rita and I have many great memories, but this next trip may be our last. We have TS in 3 different resorts. Towers, Royal Palm and LaTerrasse. They are consecutive weeks and contrary to what you would think would be a hassle, we enjoyed moving around to new views, pools and restaurants. Amy and I forst visited in 1985 and bought our first TS in 95 with Rita and Tom. We had a great 20 year run.

I have read your story and will admit that I cannot and would not suggest that I know or understand your loss as well as your friend, Rita's loss.

I have found, (for what it is worth) that life often offers us decisions as we bravely try to move ahead. You will make the right decision for you and Rita will do the same.
Good luck my friend.

So sorry for the loss of your wife. May your wonderful memories of your previous vacations together in St. MAARTEN help to ease the pain at this difficult time. I sincerely hope you and your friend will find peace on your upcoming trip.
