Pancreas Cancer Web
Born May 1919
Mother was diagnosed with PC July 2003. Northwestern wanted to do the
whipple, Mother opted out. At age 84 she was in great pysical shape for the
opperation. She chose Hospice which became our new found family from Palos
Hospital, Palos Hills, IL. (Angels of Mercy)
11th. 2003 she passed away to our Father. PC took her life fast and
aggressivly. She did not complain nor was she scared. She was a brave Woman!
'Mother, I used to call you Mama as all your children, Grandchildren &
GreatGrand children followed but during the 3 months God blessed me with
taking care of you, you had shown such bravery. I noticed I began to call you
Mother, it was out of a respect for you as I watched you handle your life
falling apart and yet you remained to the end with such dignity and bravery!
My heart will break forever while here on Earth for you. I miss you severly.
You see, you became life for me. My whole reason to live was taking care of
you. To make you laugh, to keep you from pain, to maintain your dignity
through this monster. When you left a big part of my own self went with you.
You taught me more about life in 3 Months than I was ever willing to learn
from you, thank you. Your life here will go on in me. I will do my best to
fight against the monster that took you away. Also, I have so far kept every
promise I made to you but one, just one more to get done. Until we are
together again, I will always love you with all my being, your Daughter,
The only picture I look at is in your youth
as that is how you look now in Heaven.
Mother Daughter Forever
