Topic: An update...and farewell

And so my dear cc friends, I've just returned from Canada from the traditional mourning week for our dear sister who passed away at noon a week ago, Monday, September 8th. She is in a safe and happy place, we believe and know and most of all, her horrific suffering is now over. But we are so sad and miss her, her joyous smile and simple happiness.

But in the sorrow, (especially you, Lainy) to those who have been championing for wider recognition of cc and for funding for research... the main focus (in my eyes) is for research for early detection of cc. The bottom line is that if we could find this nasty cancer earlier, before it is all over the place, there is so much more chance for survival.

Thank you all for your support, information and cyberwarmth. I'll be checking in on all of you, Belle.

Dear Belle,
I am so sorry for your loss, but glad that your sister is no longer suffering. I hope you and your family find some peace and comfort in your memories of her better days.
You're right about early detection - we're all united in our hope to save others from the pain our loved ones went through.
In sympathy,

Dear Belle,

Your sister died just 3 days after my Dad. They are now happy and at peace together in a much better place. Thanks for sharing her with us, we are all better for having 'met' both of you. Sincerely,

Belle,

My husband also passed away a few days before your sister, on 9/2/08. We can now only console ourselves knowing they are at peace, in a better place & no longer suffering. We must now all be strong with the help & support of everyone here.  Hopefully we can now make a difference for others that come here seeking support & guidance. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers.

Re: An update...and farewell

Thank you all for your kind messages of warmth and condolence. My sister is truly in a better place and we are a stronger and more devoted family for having jointly cared for her with my parents for the last nine months. As I had mentioned, we are a large family (an even dozen with my late sister) and we really bonded and consoled eachother and my parents over the last week. We shared our memories and love for our sister and most of all our relief at her deliverance from pain and agony. Thanks again, Belle
