I’ll miss her. I’ll miss her smile. She was a testament to fighting a horrific battle with dignity and grace.
This post was almost complete. I was just waiting to put the final touches on it. Then I saw Rennratt’s post. Renn and I had been talking about her mom. The first week of October, she mentioned awareness month and reminded us her mom was a survivor. I added her mom’s name to my daughter’s list of survivors for a school presentation. She reminded us to keep her mom in our thoughts just a few days ago. Please take a moment to leave some good wishes at her site. Renn is a great gal, and she’d appreciate it. I know she’d do the same for you.
In closing, I ask you to visit this site if you haven’t already. Click on the button that provides a free mammogram for every visit. I also ask you to take charge of your own lives and take care of yourselves. Men, encourage the women in your lives — moms, girlfriends, wives, daughters.
In my life, I know of Fran, and Paula, and Lynn, and Stacey, and Rhonda, and Ethel, and Diane, and Lori. And they all want you to be aware. Do it for them. Do it for your family.
Do it for you.
I would really appreciate your posting any names of survivors or those who lost their battle in my comments. We’ll all think of them together, okay?
