Another sad day for the family.

This afternoon we got the sad news that Diane, my husband's sister, passed away as a result of her cancer. The last 3 weeks she deteriorated really quickly. Her tumour had come back and the cancer was very aggressive. Three months from being diagnosed... Life seems so unfair some times. She was only 56 - far too young to die.
RIP Diane. You are in a better place. Love you.

Hi Dawn. I am soooo sorry for your loss. My grandmother was sick for more than 10 years, but when she finally succumbed to her illnesses, it was still a shock. Having a diagnosis still doesn't prepare you for their sudden departure. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Oh Dawn, that's such sad news. And 56 is far too young. What a terribly sad time this is for your families right now. Sending big hugs your way.

Hi, Dawn,
Sorry I just knew your sad news. I'm so sorry for your loss... 'Life seems so unfair some times.' - I think so, too. 56 is far too young.
Sending my hugs to you and your family. xoxoxo
