I was glad to know you found your mother's journal.You have a rare treasure in your hands.The gift of your mothers words,thoughts,feelings...
It may be hard to read at times,but it will help you see your mom in a different light.I keep a journal for my son.I too don't write as often as I would like.But I am hoping by him reading my thoughts about him,his life,my life,he will look back as a young adult,and understand who his mom was,and how much she loved him.
I still think of all of you.The more difficult times are ahead.With each passing year,it becomes more emotional to celebrate holidays,and joyus events..even your hard times,because Mom isn't here to celebrate with you,or comfort you.
It's time to focus on the positives.God gave YOU,this remarkable mom..no one will ever take away your memories..
Live life to the fullest..be happy..because she lived!Alle

Thank you for posting your Mom's journal. Her words are very touching and I can tell she had a great sense of humor. I hope you are doing well and that you, your wife and your dad are having some rest and relaxation in your lives after the end of a long journey. But, you know I still check in here frequently to see if you have had anything to say and to read new comments posted by others! My Mom was given six months to live at the end of last April and she is just now finishing her last topotecan treatment. I can see that she is going to outlive her doctor's prediction. However, I have gained valuable insight as to what the future holds in reading your web log.


I'm glad that the blog has been helpful to you and to others who are facing cancer. I have one more posting that has been half-written since July and I just have not had the heart to finish it. But I will get around to it soon. Having written so much over the last 9 months, I just ran out of steam after my mom passed away.

Still, I think of her often. This past weekend, I ran a 10K race in Vancouver commemorating Terry Fox's "Marathon of Hope" raising money for cancer research. For those who want more information you can find it at www.TerryFoxrun.org .


I continue to come back to this blog to see how you are doing. My mom passed away from this dreadful disease on September 17, 2006 after being diagnosed 10 months earlier. I so appreciated you sharing your mother's story.
