I can't believe it's been almost 15 years since Mom died. It still hurts every single day...just a different kind of hurt than in the beginning. Today's hurt is my heart aching that Anabel and Jacob will never get tickled by Freddy Finger or be bounced on Mom's lap while she sings "Horsey Horsey". Today's hurt is seeing my friends have adult relationships with their moms where they meet for coffee or lunch or shopping. Today's hurt is not being able to call Mom to laugh about how I'm starting to get haircuts like her, where she would go and get it all chopped off right when it was looking its best!

But today's joys are hearing Anabel talk about Grandma Angel as if she actually has met her before. Today's joys are being told by someone that I look more and more like my mom every day. Today's joys are having a relationship with my dad I couldn't have had if I also had a mom here. Today has much more joy than hurt.

I hope your days have much more joy than hurt. If you are in town on Saturday, June 8th, join us for hugs and smiles and tears to walk in Mom's memory. Please help me support National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too. Together, we can make a difference!

Much love,



raised of $1,000 goal
