| | Lost a friend and neighbor....
Really wonderful person who just passed away June 28th, this year! She died from ovarian cancer! I am still smarting from the loss! Everytime I used to see her ,she would call me by my first pen name and say hi,and just smile the largest smile ...she had a great brilliant smile! I will never ever forget it! It is a huge loss to the community where she was...She was a person who worked with many families...she did "baby classes" at her home..and other places...She has soo many photos of her with babies and their moms..as well as photos of the babies lined up on her couch!! LOL! I still see her web pages online! She is standing and smiling , either alone or while holding babies! It is hard to believe that she is gone from all of us! I really had high positive hopes that she would kick the ovarian cancer! Apparently it had spread before she even had known! I am angry that the cancer did what it did to sooo many, including her...I have breast cancer AND ovarian cancer on both sides of my family so I have to be doubly careful as well! But, the thing with cancer is that "it just bites"!!!You don't even know that you have it most of the time! Apparently the pain had been so awful for her..that she could no longer hug friends or relatives at all! She was also tired all of the time.and my mom, while telling me about this info on her..also said that there really aren't any major signs for ovarian...save for the facts that you will feel "bloated" and that can be a definite sign of this type of cancer!
I wrote to her two daughters via a main blogging site that they are on,..and sent the oldest one two poems that I wrote for their mom! I am soo sad...just so sad....I cry now, at the drop of a hat! I see things or hear things that trigger what I am feeling and then boom, I am a huge crying mess! But, I figure that ...crying is good..and I need to grieve...she was a great human being..and if this is what I need to do..then this is what I need to do ,for me!
Love to all that are grieving in some way...I am sorry to hear about your losses too!
