Topic: a comforting thought......

I found something that really touched me on a new website I've become a part of and wanted to share with all of you.

The quote is from the man Rick Phelps who set the group up on facebook.

"When someone you love becomes a Memory, that Memory becomes a Treasure."

This sums up so much the feelings I have from losing my Mom to this monster.

Hugs to all on this journey....

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: a comforting thought......

Dear Pam, I'm sorry for your loss. I too lost precious family members to cholangiocarcinoma. My mom and my cousin on mom's side of the family. My selfless mom was diagnosed at age 79 and passed 2 years later. My dear cousin was diagnosed at age 50 and he passed quickly 11 weeks later. My heart is heavy of course, but the quotation you cite is food for thought for all of us. I believe we all must treasure our friends and family while they are with us. In doing so we have contributed to the wealth of everlasting memories when they leave us...for whatever reason...natural causes, disease, accident, addiction, etc. Thank you for highlighting this insightful quote.
