    She's gone

    My beautiful mom passed away Friday August 8th at 12:30 am. My sisters and I were there when she left us, holding her hands. Though it was not peaceful, I am grateful that I was there as her spirit left this world and all the pain behind. She fought with all she had until her last breath. She was and will always be my hero. I will spend the rest of my life missing her and trying to live up to her legacy. Thank you all for your support over the last 15 months. My family and I are so grateful for this site and all the hope and information it provides. May God bless and keep you all. Lisa
  3. (((Randy))) Both of those songs always get me too. I had to leave a store the other day when I heard that Colin Raye song. Also "The Dance" by Garth Brooks and "How can I help you to say goodbye" by Patty Loveless - always tears. Thanks for always being here for everyone. Hope you are remembering to take care of yourself too. Hugs, Lisa

  14. Welcome, bab. This is a warm comforting place with so many supportive members. I'm sorry to hear about your dad's diagnosis. My prayers are with you, your dad and your family. Lisa
  15. Chris, I understand your need for a break, but hope you will come back when you feel you are ready. I truly believe that every member has a place here. Caregivers in my opinion are anyone who gives care whether it be emotional, physical, or spiritual. Please do not downplay the part you took in supporting and caring for your loved ones - related or not. You loved them and were there for them. Same holds true for this board. Be gentle with yourself. Peace, Lisa
  16. Deb, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Lisa

  18. Gail, I'm so sorry. Be kind to yourself. Spirit in the sky - what a fitting song. Wishing you peace and strength in the days ahead. Lisa
  19. More prayers coming your way. I sincerely hope that the oncologist has some new ideas and that Hank finds some relief. Hugs, Lisa
