It has been a rough month!

Last summer my MIL was diagnosed with cancer. Although her diagnosis was terminal she initially responded well to her treatment. However, in February she started to lose her appetite again and was experiencing a number of other problems. On February 24th she was admitted to the hospital and on March 27th she peacefully passed away surrounded by her husband, son (my DH), son-in-law and me.

Today we celebrated her life and tonight my DH and I will be drinking red wine (she loved her wine) in her honour.


A Heart of Gold

A heart of gold stopped beating
Working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
Leaves and flowers may wither,
The golden sun may set
But the hearts that loved you dearly
Are the ones that won't forget.
Goodbye Maggie!!!!!
