Last night's Sweetheart party was amazing. So many people turned out with their greys. I was so overwhelmed by everyone's kind words.
Several of you asked me about my friend Debbie who I have mentioned on this blog. I was touched by that. Sadly, my dear, sweet and lovely friend has died. She passed away around 6 this morning.
Last Thursday her doctors informed her that her cancer had spread and was beyond further treatment. She came home last Friday and hospice has been helping to ease her suffering since that time. I was lucky that her husband asked me to stay with her Friday night. I was also able to spend a good chunk of time with her Saturday evening.
She fought hard and inspired so many of us with her strength and spirit. She was and will always be my hero. Her fight against cancer this past year has taught me so much and I am truly thankful to her. She allowed me to go to treatment with her and she never held back on sharing her thoughts and feelings about everything. I admired that so much and hope that I can be a better person because of her.
Thank you all who have thought of my friend and wished her well these past few months. She was like a sister to me. I am glad she is no longer suffering but I am incredibly sad to have lost my hero so soon.
