Mom taught us to live every day to its fullest. She was a beautiful person, always offering her love, strength, wisdom, spirituality, and support to those around her. She touched so many people's lives. Mom dedicated the last year of her life selflessly caring for her father. It was because of her that we had grandpa around as long as we did. We truly believe mom earned her wings and is amongst the angels.
A mole that had become discolored was removed from mom's arm in the Fall of 2010. It came back as Stage 4 melanoma. She underwent another surgery to remove a larger area of tissue and had local lymph nodes biopsied to check for metastasis. At the time the samples came back free of cancer. Subsequent PET scans came back normal. In late December 2011 her routine PET scan revealed that further investigation was needed. On January 20 we learned that the melanoma had metastasized to her brain, lungs and other parts of her body. She passed away February 19, not even 1 month after her diagnosis.
Even though she has left this world, she continues to live on in our hearts. And we hope that she continues to live on in your hearts and memories as well.
