rest in peace Lisa

I cannot believe this has happened. I knew it was coming but still it seems unreal that she is gone. Having said this, she isn’t really gone. She is loved and will stay with everyone who ever knew her forever because that is the person Lisa was. Caring, friendly, fierce, outspoken, honest and real. You couldn’t help but fall in love with her beauty, inner and outer.

We spoke a few times about her problems with cancer and the things she had to go through and she always stressed that it should not make me or anyone else sad. It’s almost an impossible thing to do because all this time I hadn’t been able to not feel sad about it.

It is what it is, she would say over and over again and the cancer was not going to win. She was fighting it in any way she could but unfortunately the disease from hell was always waiting around the corner with something new to throw at her. Cancer never won Lisa, not even in the end. She remained strong and positive about it keeping her personality intact. Cancer never defined her life, she chose what defined her life. Cancer won her body but not her mind.

So in the way she would have liked me to do, I am not mourning her death but celebrating her life. My thoughts are with her husband and her gorgeous girls.

This is one of the hardest posts I ever had to write and I can’t type any more. Please go over to Lisa’s blog if you wish to pay your respects and leave a message for her amazing family.

One thought on “rest in peace Lisa

  1. I know exactly how you feel, Colin. My cousin, Kevin, was diagnosed with cancer in the fall of 2008. He is only 21, and it feels like his life has come to a standstill when he should be out, enjoying every minute of it.

    Cancer will not win over the perseverance of the human spirit. We will defeat this disease in our lifetime. Of this, I am certain.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
