Welcome to my blog. I hope we can help each other endure the pain of the addiction of a daughter or son.

Dead at 58

My good friend Cathy died on Wednesday morning of pancreatic cancer which had spread all over. She was surrounded by her family and friends. She was kept comfortable during the last days in the ICU. They did not try to prolong her life. They just kept her comfortable. She did not seem afraid or distressed.

This death had affected me greatly. I have difficulty sleeping and am tearful off and on throughout the days. It progressed in only a few months. She was totally destroyed in body but not in spirit or mind.

She was always on my side. I will miss her so very much.

  2. What a difficult time. When we loose a loved one we really appreciate how fragile life is and really learn to count our blessings. Sorry for your loss.
