Sad today

My friend, Susie, who was my rock during my cancer ordeal, died of ovarian cancer yesterday. To be honest, she wasn't supposed to live as long as she did, but that doesn't make me any less sad.

I'm ing and for her today because she's not in any more pain. Her sons and granddaughter were with her when she "went home."

Susie ran in the Olympic Torch relay, and I was looking at my pictures today and remembering how totally alive she was that day.

I certainly hope that my doctors don't find a recurrance of my cancer, because I'm not sure I can be quite as strong without her in my corner.

OK, I'm rambling. Sorry. I just needed to get some venting done.

A Prayer for Susie

We all have those "rocks" and when they go, a part of us goes with them. I understand your sadness and yet your celebrating her going Home and lack of any more pain. But who says you don't have Susie in your corner? You do! If you ever want to know a really personal story that's kept me going, just e-mail me and I'll direct you to a very special website that persuaded me to "go public" with it. For Susie a er and also a er for you too.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is so very hard to let go, but knowing she is at peace and out of pain is of some comfort to you I am sure. We recently had a death in my family to cancer as well, and I know that as hard as it is to lose them, its so much harder to see them in pain.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I sure agree with Margaret, that Susie is with you and will always be in your corner. May your wonderful memories keep her close to you always!

I'm sorry


I am very sorry for your loss. I'm sure that Susie fought the good fight, but she is now in the Lord's loving arms. I know that she is looking down on us and encouraging us to go on and fight our fights. I am going to Relay for Life this Friday and I will be lighting a candle in one of the bags in Susie's name.

Love always,

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, and mentor, Susie.
Do something really nice and nurturing for yourself... in remembrance of your special friend...

My thoughts & prayers are with you. And if the sad day comes that your cancer returns... you have this board, and the wonderful sisters who will love and support you....

I believe Susies spirit is with you, just not with her body...

Hi Evie,
I am so sorry for your loss,I will continue to pray for you.I know Susie is looking down from Heaven and smiling at you,she will always be in your heart.

Father God in Heaven, lift Evie's spirits, comfort her heart, ease her pain, give her the peace and strength she needs to go on. Wrap your comforting arms around her, let her know that you are there. Help her to cherish the precious moments she had with her mentor and dear friend. While she says farewell to her, hold her up and carry her through this difficult time. Fill the void with joy that her friend is finally at peace and with you lord. Be with the family of this love one, hold them together as they prepare to say their good byes, let the family know in their hearts she is in a better place. We ask this special prayer in your comforting name, Amen.

Evie, and Please tell the family, I send my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you!

You ladies are wonderful. Thank you for your prayers and wishes.

The memorial service is tomorrow. I got a call today that the family wants me to sing. So if you're thinking about it around 5:00 MDT, say a quick prayer for me that I can get through the service without totally losing it.

I'm reacting to a lot of things in a wierd way today. I know that's part of grieving. But I should have come here earlier.... it would have given me a boost!

Thank you again!

I am so sorry about your friend. I think I know how you feel as I lost one of my very special girl friends to ovarian cancer one year ago Thanksgiving.
The amazing thing is I feel her with me. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Feb this year, and I believe that she has been with me through the surgery and the chemo. Like my personal ovarian angel.
I just talked with her mom yesterday and we all miss her so much. I don't think you ever "get over it", but you "get on with it".
She left me her cat, which has been a major blessing. As he did for her, he stays with me when I'm sick in bed from chemo and when I had both surgeries.
I hope that you can find some comfort soon. I believe she's looking out for you!

Thanks again!

Her service was beautiful. A tribute to her life and her Lord, just like she wanted. The tears and laughter both flowed freely.

My eyes burn today from crying yesterday, but today, I'm able to smile a little more. Her parents and sons were very thrilled with how things went, and were confident that Suz would have loved it!
