You were sent as an angel...

You were sent as an angel, to be loved and adored
But God had a plan for you, to do so much more

Your presence brought to light, an illness so rare
That prompted an outpouring of loving and care

We will never know your smile or laugh,
But we know you created the clearest of paths

Our hearts will never forget what you mean,
To your mother, your father, your brother and me

Your purpose was not to be but one more,
But to give the chance to fight and be cured

Mama Lina, Framma, Poppie and more,
Wait for you with open arms at the door

As you enter Heaven, with the greatest of ease,
Please watch over us as we beat this disease…

This is amazing Steve. Thank you for this, it is beautiful. You are right, Framma & Poppie always wanted to be great-grandparents and now they truly are. They will all look down on Trisha and give her more strength to fight this.

Trisha -

I just heard the news about your diagnosis and I am so sorry. My families thoughts and prayers are with you all. My Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly three years ago. She underwent radical surgery and radiation. She has recovered very well and is back to her same old rotten self. When it seems a bit dark there may always be sunshine just ahead. Keep fighting and we will be thinking of you. Jimmie and family.
