Re: Update on Lauren

Dear Pam & Family,
I did not think my heart could break again but it did with the news of Lauren's continuing on with her journey. Bless Lauren and your entire family for the unselfish courageous war you all waged against CC.  The world is a better place for her bright light having shown here, even for such a short period! 
Be gentle with yourselves,

I can't tell you how saddened I am by this news.  You have an amazing family, and I am sending all of you my best thoughts for this difficult and trying time. 

May Lauren rest in peace in heaven, and know that there are many of us who have never met you but have been touched deeply by your courageous fight, and are sending you our love.

Re: Update on Lauren

Pam, You WILL see Lauren, she will come to you in a dream that will let you know she is so happy and healthy and then you will realize it is not a dream  she is really with you to let you know she is just fine. You already got your first penny. Pam start your own private log, I have a feeling she will be coming a lot and the log will bring you comfort. I am sending you an e mail about what to look for, altho Lauren knows you are not going to miss a single sign. Teddy passed Dec 6th and showed up Dec 12th for the first time. It is so wonderful as they look so good!
I love the beautiful Family picture on your Blog.  I am hoping you feel my spirit with you on the 14th. You are amazing! Much love coming your way and to your family as well.

Re: Update on Lauren

Thank you all so much for your kind words. What in the world would I do without all of you, my sweet friends. I know Lauren is in a better place and I'm sure Teddy had a seat for her at the banquet table. That table has to be getting quite large as we have lost so many to this disease. Our family promises to fight for a cure and never give up as a tribute to Lauren and all the wonderful souls before her that were taken too soon. God Bless you all and I will be back to help real soon.

Love to all,
-Pam

Re: Update on Lauren

Dear Pam and Lauren's family,
My heart is breaking as I learned about Lauren's passing.  Since my own mom's departure in Mid May, I have been closely following your blog regarding Lauren's condition... I was not able to comment or post anything.. but I checked everyday hoping and wishing for the best outcome while cheering on in silence.  I'm truly sorry for your loss..  You are such a wonderful mom and she had such a great loving family and friends.  Please know that she is no longer in pain and she is at peace...  Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss of Lauren.

sending love and lots of hugs,

Jeeyoung

Re: Update on Lauren

I have been following your blogs & forum updates for the last several weeks and now words just escape me....please know that your beautiful daughter & family are in my thoughts & prayers, God Bless

Re: Update on Lauren

Dear Pam
I was also following your blog and deeply sorry for your loss. This cancer is so unbelievably cruel and offers so little hope. I was really hoping that Lauren would be one of the exceptions.
Thinking of you and your family, Alla

Re: Update on Lauren

Pam, I loved your Blog, felt like I was there, but went through quite a few Kleenex's then took a bath towel! Pam you are one courageous woman and I just know Lauren is so proud to be your daughter. That will never, ever change. Do what you can do in your own time. Like me, I think you do find some peace in writing and it is a good way, one way, to keep those Memories flowing. Love you to pieces. Time, give it lots of time but at the same time you know Lauren wants you to be happy, when you are ready.

Re: Update on Lauren

Dear Pam,
   I have not been online for weeks and lost track of many friends here so seeing your news about Lauren was heartbreaking. I am so, so sorry. Words can't heal your broken heart right now but time will help lessen the grief. I know I tended to get teary and often cry when talking or thinking about Tom after he first passed but now I usually laugh when thinking of him. I think of our good times and his smile and laugh and voice and you will remember Lauren that way too. You'll get over the trauma you obviously have been through, it's like suffering from PTSD after being a caretaker for so long and having to go through all that you and your family experienced at the end. Watching a child go through what Lauren did would be torture. But in time those memories will fade and you'll be able to laugh again. You'll still cry... just not as often !! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and with Lauren. We have a new, beautiful CC angel. We'll always remember her strength and courage. Take care of yourself, Pam. Remember we are all here for you.     Love, Mary

Re: Update on Lauren

Pam,

I have not been on this site in months.  Maybe it was because I wanted to wish everything was the way it once was.  I was absolutely devastated to hear of Lauren's passing.  My heart breaks for you and your family.  You as her caregiver, are a saint.  God bless you and your family.  May you find peace. 

Lauren

Re: Update on Lauren

I;m so sorry.  I have been out of town for a while and not able to update on the board.  But I followed your blog while I was away.  I'm so sorry to hear about Lauren.  Praying for you and your family.

Take care,
