In Memory of...


My Aunt Jane
Cancer stole her life this week. She was my mom's baby sister. The younger girl in this photo. I didn't know her well as she lived far away for my entire life. I do know she was a loving mother, a loving sister, a good wife, and a kind person. She sent me a card every Christmas and always asked about me when she spoke with my mother. She leaves behind a devoted husband, a son, a daughter and two beautiful grandchildren. She was only 55.

I am so sorry for your loss.

Being so far away from my family, this is my biggest fear...that my son will not know all who love him. Maybe it is easier that way...

I'm sorry to learn of this news. It's amazing how rampant cancer is b/c everyone I know has been affected by it. It sounds like she was a wonderful person. HUGS!
