Oh Marlee, I am so sorry! Your cousin and her family have my prayers. I was in my twenties when I lost my father to lung cancer, its never easy.
I'm happy you are back and that you enjoyed your reunion.
"Healing is an energy phenomenon. Hope is another word for Healing. "Cracks in the concrete are just reminders that you fall apart no matter how strong you are""Sometimes it is best to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve""Im going to smile like nothing is wrong, talk like everything is perfect, act like its all a dream, and pretend its not hurting me."
Happy to hear you made it home safe and sound. But not to the news about your cousin. How sad.
My mom was 60 years "young" when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and we lost her a year later. My sister, brother and I were in our early 30's and had 10 more years of lifes experiences than her kids. They are just starting out. My heart goes out to you and her family. GamJill
