"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left, and could say: "I used everything you gave me."

We received the call today that we had been dreading. Our beautiful friend has left us. I am so glad that I got to spend last Thursday with her. It was a rough day for her, but we had some laughs and battered back a few tears along the way. She was looking forward to going home and being done with the needles and IV's for awhile. When I left, we both said "I love you". Thank you God for that, it doesn't make the loss any easier, but at least I got to tell her I loved her. Our thoughts all day have been with her Family. They are all strong individuals, and will be there for their Dad,who's battling his own health issues , it just leaves "us" the Friends with ....????....no matter what words you use, no matter how many things you would like to say...they're just words. Do they help? Not really, only time helps, and personal space. But we must say something right? She was Bossy, opinionated, beautiful, compassionate, a hard worker, a Beader, can't forget that, and funny, and so much fun to be around. I admired her "Can-Do" attitude and friendliness to all. She leaves a big hole in a lot of lives. Cancer..........there are no words.................I miss her terribly already, I miss our "Beady" get togethers, the card games, lunch, laughter, just sharing our lives for a short time. The pain and suffering is over for her....the heartbreak for those she left behind has just begun. I can hear your laughter "Queenie", I hope it stays with me forever..........
