Life had been rough around the edges lately...
I have had 3 dear people pass away in 3 months.
My cousin, Karyn, in May
My walking partner, Bonnie, 2 weeks ago
My sister in law's sister, Annette, last week.
All of the from Cancer.
Karyn's was a year fight. Bonnie and Annette
fought it off and on for 14-15 years each.
All of these ladies left us, way to early.
Besides cancer these ladies all shared a great sense
of being. All had a great sense of humor, all had been
so brave and courageous as they fought cancer. All

The 3 of them raised the bar for all of us. Gave us so much, and
asked so little. Showed us all what courage was about, and we

can once again laugh, and enjoy those who went before them.
And wait until we join them in later years.
Karyn, Bonnie, and Annette....thanks for the memories....
Will miss your smiles that lit up, like the sun above in the
