    Thank you Steven. We’re all in shock here. Knowing someone is in the process of dying doesn’t help the impact when they finally pass, but it was blessing. She is no longer in pain and can soar free.

    She always had a bright and mischievious look in her eyes,and a bright and mischievious outlook in life. What took her was nasty, quick but not quick enough (she was diagnosed in April…). What hits me most is that she’s the same age as my only sister.
