Today would have been Kris' 38th birthday. Where else to celebrate it than on this site?!
Although the aniversary of her death (Jan 4th, almost two years now) is also special, her birthday is more important to me - she was always much more focused on life than on death, and as time goes by, all the fear, pain and suffering fades in my memory, and her spritelieness and giggly laughter stand out more and more. I seldom think of her without a smile!
I thought that rather than write a new post I'd bump this one, since it has the link with the picture. Yes, I remember the twinkle just like it is in the picture...
She always lit two candles in her "prayer chimney", one for herself and one for someone else - usually someone on this page. Tonight there are two candles burning there again, and again one of them is for you folks - all of you. I wonder how many of her cancer buddies are still around, and if newcomers to the site sometimes wonder about her stranger entries...?
