My Childhood Friend Passed

rumoret Member Posts: 45

My dear friend passed away on Thursday, January 15, 2009. She was dx in 2003 and has been battling the return of her breast cancer for the last 1 1/2 years. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, stepmother, and wife. She was determined to fight to the end......and she did. Only when her quality of life was so bad did she refuse to fight any further.

So another Angel found her wings........she was 54 years young. Her name was Carol Duncan.

I loved you Carol......

Look to this dayFor it is life, the very life of life.In its brief course lie all the
Varieties and realities of this existence
This bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendour of beauty;
For yesterday is only a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope
Look well, therefore to this day
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
