:'( thats all i have to say about that
« on: December 30, 2006, 11:06:37 AM »
Today is saturday December 30th 2006... Mrs. Jean M. Colfax...(aka my mother) has passed away at 3:23 am. She had her family around her as she passed. She did suffer for a long time beforehand. she kept saying 30 3  dec. 30th, at 3 am...  oh god mom, i love you

here's a poem she wrote when she battled cancer for the first time.

Ill always love and miss her. Heres a poem she wrote a long time ago when she was first diagnosed with cancer, titled Things to Live for:

Things to live for, there are so many;
Reasons to accept death, there aren't any.

When facing death, knocking at my door;
I think, and remember things to live for.

My child's smile, and embracing hug,
The "I love you" and little shirt tug.

The surprise gifts they buy me, for being here,
On Mother's day, and throughout the year.

For the little art treasures they made in school,
To the complaining they do, after breaking a rule.

The eyes full of tears, as they cry "Oh Mom,"
The dresses I made for the dance, and the prom.

For the chuckles and giggles through the teen years;
My tears at their wedding as everyone cheers.

For grandchildren's faces that light up with delight,
As I give them Pez ghosts on Halloween night.

For these things, I'm grateful, and much more;
Cancer won't beat me; "I have things to live for."

By Jean M. Colfax

Love you mom.

Her poem was absolutely beautiful as it sounds like her life was.

So sorry to hear this...
When I am grown-up I will understand how BEAUTIFUL it feels to administrate my life effectively.

Until then I will continue to TORCH all correspondence that bores me and to dance NAKED over the remnants of its still glowing embers.
