Good morning foot soldiers. Yesterday a beautiful soul & a spunky spirit transitioned. I am so thankful Amy allowed me to be part of her life during such a special and sacred time. Spicy Smurf. That was my name for her. She had the most beautiful eyes and the longest eyelashes ever! She was very independent and wanted to do everything herself and take care of everyone around her. Despite her pain, fear and baggage, she lived out her purpose in her last days.
On Sunday morning, her big brother said, “It’s okay you can go now.” She responded, “okay.” She puffed out her last breath. It was over. No more pain from the cruel monster that ravished her body — that devil, cancer. She began her final rest with big sister holding one hand, hubby holding the other and her brother rubbing her feet.

Long before my child-bearing age, I decided I would not enable my sons (if I had any). I have since come to know […]
