A Sad Weekend

I can't manage my weekly post today.It's been a very sad time for our family this week. On Friday morning ,my hairstylist and dear friend Jerry died very unexpectedly after having been diagnosed with lung and liver cancer only two weeks ago. He was the longest survivor Of HIV and Aids in Canada.

That night my step children's mother Denise, who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only three months ago, passed away peacefully. She was a wonderful person who loved life to the fullest and her boys and her husband were her life.My heart aches for those dear people who have to go on without her.

Thank You everyone for your kindness.We are experiencing a huge snow storm(another one) and I won't be able to attend Jerry's funeral as it is in another town and we are being advised to stay off the roads. Maybe the funeral will be postponed.
Denise's funeral is Thurs. so it will be a long week but only one day of visitation on Wed..My husband and I have done all we can for the boys and now we've all decided to do our normal things until then because that's what keeps you going isn't it? Hugs to you all.
