Moving on....

My sister Deanna left this earthly existance yesterday. Her fragile body gave in to the ravages of cancer. Now she is pain free and renewing relationships with loved ones that have gone on before. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. We loved to camp together every summer as a family (sisters and husbands) in Pine Valley, UT. The above picture represents one of Deanna's favorite places to be, her so called 'heaven on earth'. We have teased each other that she has gone on ahead to find the best camping sites. We are going to hold her to that promise.

Out of the Dreariness...

What can I say? The start of this year has been tough. My dear sister Deanna is dying of cancer. In fact at this moment I am waiting for a call from Brownie letting me know that she has moved on. One of her favorite quotes is: "Out of the dreariness, into the cheeriness, come we joyfully, home."
January 6th I traveled to Newport Beach, CA to spend some time with her. My sister Sue joined me on the 9th and the three of us had three great days together. The day I left was the hardest. I had to say good-bye. Literally. We hugged and cried and hugged some more. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. So, I will take some advise from myself and say 'see ya later' my dear sister Dee. I love you.
