Thanks so much for sharing her story with us. I hope she can be made comfortable, keep us updated. I've lost either a good friend or co-worker to breast cancer the last three Augusts in a row (it has me praying this one goes by without a loss.) It's odd how as we get older, there are a number of shooting stars that pass through our lives, enrich us, endear themselves to us, and once gone, help us appreciate our own lives all the more through our treasured experiences with them.
: : It is indeed tragic about the mother and her children. I can't imagine what torment a woman must feel to do such a thing, and when those tragedies hit so close to home, they stick with you for a while. I'll keep all their families, and Colleen as well, in my prayers.
: Beautifully expressed, Diana. Thank you for putting the thoughts of many of us into words to share. Your phrase about the "shooting stars" will stay in my mind for a long time.
: Take heart, Penny. Your Mohican family is always here for you to "talk" to when you need us. And Diana, I'm certainly hoping no more bad tidings come your way for a long time!
: Love to you both, and to all my friends in Mohicanland!
ain't that the truth. Family. No other word for it. It's a family. And an unusual family it is too....no one superior to another, no one dominant, no one a "black sheep" or outcast (hmmm, well there IS Doc Mary but we love her too), and all equal.
