End of Chemo Party Tonight / A Loss

It has been an emotionally filled day and Rebekah and all of us are very much looking forward to Rebekah's end of chemo party tonight even if it will be a bit subdued.


Words are difficult. While we are happy for where we are, it is very difficult to rejoice when others are having so much sorrow. Another chemo friend passed today and our hearts and prayers are with her family. For the tear in our eye and the little buttefly:

In Loving Memory


The beautiful white rose that has touched so many of us in so many ways is by and used with permission from Australian photographer Lisa Hocking Please see her blog and thank her for its use.

This morning I was still troubled by the White Rose. I knew what it meant the last time you showed it. Then I spotted the hand on "in loving memory",clicked and then saw the beautiful butterfly girl. I hate to assume, but I guess you were shareing her passing with us? I am sorry for this loss for you and all of those around her. May the Lord share in your grief and rejoice at her "coming home". Love,Teresa

I am sorry for not being more clear and making some assumptions about what would be understood.

A white rose here signifies the loss of another dear chemo kiddo. As was the case here, it might be without details when our hearts are troubled because we know there has been a loss but the details are not yet available. As details become available to be shared we will. Much depends on the wishes of the family.

So thankful for the end of chemo. I know it's only the end of one stage in recovery, but it's a stage I'm sure is nice to have behind you. And I'm so sorry for the loss of yet another friend.

I'm very sorry for the loss of your chemo friend. She has gone home and free of pain. I pray for those who loved her.

Rebekah should have fun tonight and celebrate life!

I went back and read about the ALS in your family and I am sorry for your familie's losses. There is always hope, even with ALS. I just hit 16yrs and still drive. My entry on the power of mind and words might help to ease your fear's.

Celebrate life!

I hope Rebekahs's end of chemo party was a blast!!!
I clicked on the white rose and as soon as I read the type of cancer Nikolette had, my heart went out to her and her family (even though I have never met them)because this was the same type of leukemia my brother had and he loss his battle 6 months after being diagnosed. My prayers are with her and her family.
