My Mom

Thank you to all for the prayers, support and good wishes over the last few months.
I feel the power of prayer and am so grateful for it.
On Saturday, February 5, 2011, my dear sweet Mother passed away.
I am heartbroken and will miss her always.


Here she was with my Dad, me and my twin when we were sweet babies.


And this photo is from Mother's Day, 2009 -- and her second battle with cancer had just begun.
She was a brave and incredible Mother.
