edited June 2014 in May Their Memory Live On

My SIL has fought for her life over the last 10 years, we celebrated her 40th birthday this month and she was still going strong, chemo, gamma knife to brain met. But the last few weeks left her to exhausted to fight anymore and so she left us tonight to get her wings. She entrusted her husband and family to care for her two darling daughters who are now in 2nd and 5th grade.. We will miss her as she was an inspiration to all that observed her as she put up her dukes and fought like a girl!

    Linda, i am so sorry to read this sad news about your Sister-In-Law.  She sounds like she was quite a warrior.  I have added her to the List of Angels in the Relatives and Friends section.  My condolences to the family and friends.

    It's so awful that her children are now without their mom.  I'm sorry for your loss, Linda and I'm also sorry that the drugs and treatments failed her.

    God Bless her husband, children and family.
