love never ends

it is with a heavy heart, that i post that we lost gayle today.  she was about 22 months post amputation for soft tissue sarcoma, and was nearing the one year date of identifying the existence of oral melanoma.  she had two surgeries to remove the oral tumors, and continued to battle up to the end.  in the last two months, we discovered additional melanomas in her lymphatic system which were extremely aggressive.  sometimes, in battle, everything you have just isn’t enough.  gayle died a hero, a true tripawd warrior princess.

we appreciate all of the support we’ve received, especially from jim & rene, ge’lena, karen, the list goes on.  there were a few disappointments, when folks that we’d so valiantly supported, chose to close the door on us as we continued to fight.  at this terrible time of sadness in our house, you guys know who you are, and out of respect for gayle, i ask that you not post a comment.

it will be a blue christmas without you, my sister.  love never ends.
