Well, today has been a very hard day. Nate's mother passed away this afternoon due to the cancer in her body. Had we known how fast she was going to go we would have gone up with Nate Friday night. But we were told that she might have a couple of weeks still, so we decided that we would go up later to say our goodbye's. When Nate called this afternoon to see if we could come up tonight I hurried best I could packing up the kids things and Whitnee's machines. I managed to get the car loaded in an hour and a half and while we were waiting for my mother to come to help me with Whitnee, I got a call from Nate letting us know that she had passed.

We are soooo sad to lose such a wonderful and loving mother, grandmother and friend. She brought so much love and joy into all of our lives, and will be greatly missed. It is hard to believe that it has been four year since she was diagnosed with her Thyroid Cancer. She had gone through a lot of pain over the years especially recently. It brings great peace to know that she is not in any more pain.

We love you so much Mom, Grandma you are always in our thought and prayers.
