Rest In Peace Virginia!

My best friends daughter ended her battle with cancer on Friday 9/21/07. She has fought harder than anyone I know over the last year since being diagnosed. At only 19 it's heartbreaking to see her leave us, but at the same time it was devastating to watch her in pain.

Virginia was a people person and she taught me how to talk to anyone. I feel blessed to have so many memories to keep her spirit alive. I just need to pass the hump of sadness. It's amazing how I've known deep down this day was coming since last June when she was diagnosed yet its still feels like a shock.

I'm going to be busy with events and trying to do what I can to help this week so stamping will likey not happen.

I'm so sorry you're having to deal with the pain of losing someone so close to you and especially at such a young age. You honor her by sharing her story with the rest of us.
