    My wife died. She passed 8 days short of 10 years after the initial diagnosis. With my help and her determination she was in remission four times. In 2021 a second form of cancer appeared. The treatment only slowed the cancer. She was an amazing woman. She encouraged me to continue with battleships during these years. Take your loved ones out for ice cream. Time goes by fast.

    My condolences on your loss. I know the losses that cancer can bring. Lost both my parents and father in law to cancer. They are never truly gone as long as they live in your heart and mind. All the best.

    Lorraine was a great gal.
    She always had cookies and chips for Mark and I when we went on road trips.
    She always made sure that Mark shared the supplies with me ;);)
    I have known her for a long time.
    Sweet person,
