A very special friend of mine has been diagnosed with a special form of Stage IV metastatic breast cancer.

Hey Barb,

she sounds a wonderful and very courageous lady.

I guess there are many things she can do for her grandkids. I know someone who did a scrapbook of her life, she filled it with pictures, she wrote stories for her children, wrote letters, birthday cards for each year that she knew she was going to miss. Some of the stuff she did with her children so they had their own stories and thoughts in this special book.

It's hard to explain to children. My little nephew is missing his daddy and it's been so hard to explain why his daddy had to go to Summerland heaven. Sometimes words and explanations are never enough.

Promise

I am so thankful that she has shared her concerns because I can perhaps do some things to help ease her mind.

I know she will be grateful for your support and to know that she isn't alone but has someone she can talk with.

I'm doing well physically, but not so much mentally or emotionally. It's a long story, one that I will share with you soon. I'll email you. I've missed you, too, believe me!
