Mom is in the arms of the angels

Recommended Posts

My sweet mother, Barbara Hansknecht, left this earth for her heavenly home on Monday, April 24, 2006, at about 4:30 am. She was surrounded by love, and passed peacefully with family beside her.

She lived just over 2 years from diagnosis of stage IV NSCLC, and while nearly all of that time was spent with chemo ongoing, she nevertheless was active and felt pretty good most of the time. Only in the last 2 weeks did she decline (and rapidly); take heart that stage IV disease diagnosis can STILL leave you with good time to spend!

Will post obit link later.


aka "Suzie Q", my mom's nickname for me

May you have family and friends around you and may they, and memories of Mother......and Dad as well..........bring you some comfort.

I will be thinking of you,
