Bitter sweet ending...

A young woman that was a bit behind me in school passed beyond what this world has to offer yesterday and it is so bitter sweet.  This lady has endured cancer 12 times since she was 29.  I think it's very ironic that she was first diagnosed with breast cancer and passed away on October 1st.  It is all over face book, of course.  Her hometown has had fund raiser after fund raiser for her trying to ease the burden knowing the end was near.  She never gave up and always smiled.  She raised 2 kids through it all and never stopped working.  I am pretty good friends with her brother and sis in law.  We spend time together for different events through the year and through hunting season.  They are all good people and they will miss her but, I know they are relieved this young woman will endure no more cancer.  God Bless them all.

So sorry to hear that.  My Mom passed away September 20th.  Her cancer started as lung cancer and spread to her brain.

Thinking of you, your friend and the family!

Did she pass away? I am so sorry to hear that. I didn't know. That was my birthday, and I was at the beach, so that's probably why I missed it.

My mom's still hanging in there, but they think it will happen this month.

 She went peacefully, I was so happy to hear that.  The last few days for her, you could tell were a struggle even though she couldn't tell us.  I actually hadn't put it on here til now.  Even though we were expecting it, it was still such a hard blow. 

Sorry about your Mom, it is so hard to watch our loved ones go through this.

I've heard that about death like this. You can never be prepared, which seems counterintuitive, but it's true.

I mean, how does one walk the planet without a mother? I've never been motherless. I don't know how to do that.
