My mom was diagnoed with Stage 4 lung cancer in Sept.'06. Doctors gave her a 12-16 months prognosis. She was a fighter,and lived much longer than expected. The chemo depleted her energy, yet she persevered with great courage and dignity. Mom never ever complained during the grueling ordeal. She remained in good spirits until the very end. Mom passed away peacefully in her home on 7/27, surrounded by family and friends. I suggested we all gather around her and recite the Lord's Prayer . We surrounded her with Love, holding hands. After the prayer, Mom stopped breathing. It brings me comfort to know she is no longer suffering and is finally at peace. She was an amazing woman, with a beautiful heart of gold. The world will not be the same without her special sparkle. I love you Mom,with all of my heart!
