Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Default Dedicated to Olga Guerrero

My mom passed away on December 26, 2000 after her third battle with breast cancer. Her last go round was metastasized breast cancer. Losing her was the hardest, most devastating thing I ever had to go through. She was a single mom so my only parent and my best friend. I miss her everyday. What finally got me through was knowing she wanted me to be happy. Those were some of her last words to me "Be happy." I know she wouldn't want me to remember as she was in those final months because that would take away from the strong woman she was. I'm tearing up right now typing this but I have to wipe away those tears and think of happier times because doing that will honor her.

I love you mommy. Always.

We all love our mothers. Feel sorry for your loss. My mom has breast cancer too. Last year that was removed by an operation. She became very week after that. She is still struggling, pray for her.

May god save all our mothers

Default My Mother lost her battle September 9, 2014

My mother, Elaine Koss, lost her battle with breast cancer on September 9, 2014 just past her 83rd birthday (August 8th). We miss her so much. She was an amazing woman and our time with her was way too short. I think of her every day and feel her with us, watching over us. That is all I can say for now as it is still so hard to write about.

It's sad how time starts to tick fast the moment people get breast CA. It's something I am quite afraid of since I am already in my late 20s. I pray to those battling with breast CA, keep pressing on.

Default In Memory of Gina

It was 3 years ago this month that we lost one of our fellow WAHMS from Breast Cancer. She was a lovely woman. Always so positive and helpful. We miss her.

RIP Gina Koinski
