That dreaded disease Cancer has claimed another victim. Today one of my oldest and dearest friends Deonne lost her mother to lung cancer. Like my dad, she was in her late 50's and is certainly too young to be taken away from her family.
She is survived by her husband Robert, and two daughters Deonne and Sharon. So if you can, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers today.
These are the times when it really sucks to be so far away from my family and friends. I would love nothing more than to be there with them right now, to offer my support and love and yet I am on the other side of the country - and may as well be another world away!
I was looking forward to spending some time with her when we go over to Sydney in December but now it is too late.
If anything, this is a reminder to appreciate the people in our lives, and never miss the opportunity to let them know how important they are to you and how much you love them. Life is just too short.
With much love to you and yours today
