So....

our friend Carol passed away yesterday, leaving behind her family.

I am overcome with sadness for them, for her husband. I can't imagine losing a spouse like that, I watched my mom go through it when my father died, and I can honestly say I have no idea if I could.

I was up last night a little after 2:00am overcome with fear, just stark fear. What if, what if, what if...plaguing my mind.

Life is so short, so very short and so very beautiful and sad all at the same time, and cancer is such an awful word...such an awful disease, haunting and unfair.

so please all of you who read this, hug someone you love today, tell them you love them, tell them anything and everything you want, they want to hear it, so don't hold back.

sorry this is a bummer. also, a head's up that Petite Heights might not get posted on Sunday, probably later in the day or monday.

xoxoxo

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I don't think that post's like this one are downers.They are real life experiences. I think that sometimes people need reminding of things like this. It is a wonderful, inspiring thing to not be afraid of reminding others. That only makes you stronger in my eyes.:)Your friend, her family and everyone who knew her will be in my thoughts and prayers. *HUGS*
