Your Thoughts  :   Your tribute to your sister was beautiful. It does seem that the kindest, most beloved people are taken first. My mother, two uncles and now my aunt were taken by cancer. My comfort is in knowing that God is taking care of all of them. My husband's cancer survival is proof that miracles are possible. We just never know which people will receive the miracles. It doesn't make sense. Again, I am sorry for your loss, and I am proud of you. Warmest regards, Toni

I am touched by her courage and love for everyone around her. I hope I don't have to go what she went through, but if I do I hope it's with the courage that Diane has shown.

Your Thoughts  :   What a beautiful person your sister wasIt was hard for me to read this site because it is one of my worst fears. (As it probably is for all of us here because it strikes too close for comfort) but Im glad I did because it really touched my heart. It sounds like your sister did not let this disease rob her of her dignity or courage, and that she used her allotted time so very wisely.
Thank you for sharing
Peace be with you

Your Thoughts  :   Although I never knew Diane, I sure feel I am like her in some ways. She seems to have been a pretty remarkable woman. I know that through my long journey I have ahead of me that I will remember this story and hold my head up high and know that Diane will be an Angel helping me see things the way she did. It's amazing how not ever knowing someone and yet I feel like I do know her now and need her. That's right I need her and now that I have read her story. I will have her in my heart to help me get through any tough times that may occur. I thank you once again for what you have done by following through with her wishes by creating this site. She must be so proud of all of you. You have done a wonderful job. I have posted messages asking other women with BC to read Diane's story. I will continue to post her website in hopes that other women will read her words it and learn from Diane's experiences like I have. Good bye for now.

Your Thoughts  :   You are such a dear brother and family to your sister. How wonderful she must have felt knowing you would take such care with her web site. I am sincerely awed at this love. I have forwarded this site to all my family members that are online. Diane wrote some things that are just too hard to say and I hope my family will recognize some of them. I cried such good tears this morning reading your sister's words. Not all is rosy living with BC and that's OK. I will pray for you and your family's recovery in your grieving process. It will be slow and painful at times but remembering Diane as you have in her site will help balance your grief. Thank you again for sharing this experience with me, I feel privileged. God Bless. Peace be with you.

Your Thoughts  :   When Diane spoke up how sick she was but kept it to herself. That is me with BC. The word cancer frightened my family. My sisters never supported me when I needed a hand to hold. My parents were afraid. Her story is beautiful. She was strong. Thank you for this experience.
