I have not been here much the last few months. I spent alot of time in
Pheonix with my sis who was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer the end
of August. She spent most of the time since then in the hospital. I
helped my Mom take care of her. Being with her when Mom had surgery in
October and when she needed to do things and didn't want my Sis left
alone. I spent 3 weeks with her last month returning home after
Thanksgiving. I was to go back last week, but came down with a cold.
Her son was in Iraq, but the Red Cross was called & they made
arrangements for his return. He arived in Phx Sat night. Sunday, my
Sis went to Heaven with her son, one of her daughters and Mom & Dad by
her side. Our hearts are broken now, but we know the Lord will heal
them. My Sis & I were very close. We were 1 year & 3 weeks apart. The
last few months have been hard on me because she was the one I called
when I needed to talk to someone. One of her vocal cords had been
parelized during her biopsy in August so it was very hard for her to
talk. I never told her bye because I really didn't think she would die.
She was one of the main contribotors in my trip to Germany for surgery.
She is survied by her husband Jim, her son Cliff(19), 2 daughters Amber
(18) & Rachel (8), her daughter in law, Tara and Grandson Aiden (3
months) Her Mom & Dad, 2 Sisters and a Brother & lots of neices, nephews
and great neices and nephews. She was greeted in Heaven by both sets of
grandparents, a cousin and a Aunt and by our Lord.
She will be missed by so many, as she touched so many lives. A Memorial
Service will be held in her home town of Ajo, Arizona on Saturday.
Thank you to all that prayed for her & my family the last few months.
