Heaven Just Got Brighter

Life has been strange,  hectic, and sad.  Last night we lost Pops mother after a very short battle with lung cancer.   It really cannot be called a battle with lung cancer.  The battle was  chemo.  Her fragile body couldn’t handle the chemo.   Stage 1 cancer.  2nd round of chemo.  Gone.

Life is strange.  Lovely.  Scary.

Jo was the most kind, gracious, loving person that ever touched my children’s lives.     Love just flowed.   Effortlessly.   One of my sons said, “No matter what I did or could do, I could never love her as much as she loved me. ”



I will be back in touch when we rise to the surface.

In the meantime,

God bless,

    My deepest sympathy goes out to all of Jo’s family. She was a wonderful woman who touched my life and the life of my boys. Jo made a point to form a relationship with us and we were lucky enough for feel that unconditional love you speak of, as well. We loved her return and will miss her genuine concern for people, sense of humor and honesty about life.

    Karen, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother-in-law’s passing. How sweet to read such a lovely sentiment from a daughter-in-law. How touching to hear how your boys felt as well. Hope you, Jeff and the boys are celebrating a wonderful life lived by a wonderful mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.

    Aww my prayers and hugs go to all the family. She was such a Beautiful, vibrant, sweet and smart, caring woman. She was so easy to talk with and so funny! She will be truly missed by all! Earth’s loss, now heavens gain. She is now an angel and not in pain or discomfort, she’s happy as can be. And looking down to each of you.

    Know that we share in your sense of loss … it is always tough to lose those we love and another link with our past. Your tribute means she lived life extraordinarily well and touched others with her heart. In the end, it is the legacy we would all like to leave behind. Our prayers are with your family. Hugs to all of you.
