It is certainly a bittersweet time, isn't it, Jo-Ann. I remember reading the posts when Mitchell passed, and I wept for you. Even now I cannot imagine your personal pain and feelings of loss. On the otherhand, look at those precious grandchildren. And, don't forget the lives of so many women you have touched. Mine was one of them. I remember posting about
the microcalcifications found on my mammogram four years after lumpectomy and how frightened I was in March of 2000. In the midst of your personal pain you were one of those who calmed my fears and held me close while I went through another round of biopsies that turned out to be negative. We are all richer for your friendship. Happy anniverary and congratulations on beating the odds, my very dear friend. Hugs, Lauri (dxed 04/11/96)
