One of my good friends lost her battle with cancer today.
This is a very distressing event for everyone who knew Ms. M. The illness happened so quickly! One moment, she was fine and bouncing off the walls....and the next, she was fighting for breath in the ICU of the local hospital.
I had just had coffee with her 5 weeks ago. She was bubbly, happy, and ready to rebuild her home business after having to take a year off to recover from an unrelated brain surgery.
2 weeks later, I called to see if she wanted to get coffee again but she turned me down - she had "pneumonia" and had to stay in bed.
A week after that, her doctor admitted her into the hospital.
2 weeks later, she was gone....
So, do me a favor and go hug your family on this Memorial Day. Remember - life is short. All we can do is live each day to its fullest.....
