|She recently married her sister (as an officiant)|
|me with Hope's beloved peanuts as she called them shortly after their first birthday|
|Less than 2 months ago, she brought the twins to Shanna's house to play with Tessa|
After the twins were born, I didn't see her for a while (except on Facebook). Then one day, she showed up for class. Her hair gone, her face bloated and her skin yellow. Uh-oh. The twins were now a year and she invited me over to see them. We had a very pleasant day. She seemed to get stronger and asked if her babies could play with Tessa. As Shanna lives near her, we arranged a fun playdate in September. When she got back from her sister's wedding, she was going to have Shanna and Tessa over. That didn't happen. She died two days ago. I went to the funeral home last night. So sad. She was only a bit older than Shanna and leaves those cute little girls.
She was one of the happiest people I ever met despite her must knowing that she was going to die soon. She said she never paid attention to statistics and lived like they did not matter. She was totally devoted to the babies who brought her much joy. I kept assuming that she'd find another way to extend her life, as she had before.
I am so glad I knew her.
