It was a year ago today that Tiphanie, a member of this forum, passed away from cancer. I know she touched many of us deeply. Tiphanie was in her early 30's, had 5 children and was very scared knowing she would soon leave them and her husband. I know how much she appreciated everyone here.
My fiance kept reminding me that I was emotionally weak, having recently been diagnosed with MS and I should not involve myself in her situation. Well, I did and I learned so much from her. Besides, how can you not get involved when you see a scared, sweet girl sitting alone in the chat room waiting for someone to talk to?
I hope with all my heart that her husband and children are managing ok, a year later.. that is all Tiphanie cared about. I can't imagine how much they must miss her.
Tiphanie, I didn't know you very well, but you touched me. I will always remember the day you had to leave your family.
