My Sister Lost her Battle with Colon Cancer
Thursday, June 21, 2018
Today my sister lost her battle with colon cancer. She has been suffering for over a year with it. She has made it farther than expected, but it hurts just as much. We weren't close for a long time, and then when I found out she had cancer, we started writing to each other through emails and calling each other.
I am so happy we got closer. My husband and I even went to see JoAnn and her husband on Valentine's Day. She was in Florida and we are in Ohio. We had a great week of love and laughter and she was hurting, but put on a brave front.
She will always be in my heart and spirit. I am so happy we had gotten close again. You never realize what you got until it's gone. Life is short, and it is so worth it to make up with a loved one than to be bitter. I know I am very grateful. I appreciate and will always treasure our memories of Valentine's week.
Enjoy your loved ones, because you never know what could happen and how quickly they could be gone. I am grateful for the treasured memories. And we will be forever mermaids in spirit.
