      My friend Jacque passed away peacefully last night at home. She was able to come home from the hospital yesterday and be with her family.

      I know that she is without pain now and peaceful but I'm so angry and sad for her family now. She left behind a wonderful husband and 3 young girls.

          Kellie,

          I am so sorry for the loss of your good friend.  I know you, her husband and daughters are in great pain.  I lost my husband of 43 years on Nov 30, 2010…It hurts…a lot…This is an anwful disease.  I am glad she was able to be home.  Jim was not able to come home, and we were told he had about 4 weeks…We went to the hospice at the VA, we were not even there 12 hours and we was just gone.  I'm having a really difficult day today and so sorry we could bring him home.  I was there with   him alone.  It was not expected as quickly as it happened.

          I pray for peace and comfort for you, and your friend's family ..and myself.  May God bless us all and give us comfort.

          Take Care,

          Sherron, wife to Jim FOREVER

              Kellie – I am so sorry…I read Jacque's CaringBridge site in tears.  What a beautiful family.  I hate melanoma so much.    

              As hard as it is, please try and keep your mind and body in a good place during this hard time.

              All my best,

              Emily

                  I read some of her lovely Caringbridge site – this is incredibly sad. 

                  I envy those of you with a strong faith.  I have always been on the fence about my own beliefs.  Your friend had such faith that God was good and that one way or the other, she would be fine.  She was extremely courageous and was clearly able to live her life with great joie de vivre despite such difficult battles.  I am so sad for her family and those who loved her. 

                  Thinking of you and all those feeling bereaved at the loss of such a lovely young woman.

                          Kellie, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. It must have been some comfort (albeit small) that she was with her family at such an intensely personal time. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

                              I also agree that I was deeply touched reading her caring bridges page.  She sounded like an amazing person.  She was much too young, this is a horrible disease.  I am glad that her family and friends and her faith were with her.

                                    So sorry about your friend…so young and with small kids. Melanoma is so horrible!

                                              Dear Kellie-

                                              I'm so saddened to hear that a mother, spouse, and friend is now gone from "our world".  I know it's trite and perhaps too simplistic, but I feel it's true:  She IS most assuredly in a better place now- with no pain and unimaginable Love.   

                                              It still hurts, very much so, when a loved one is no longer with us.  

                                              Prayers and Love to ALL, Grady.

I went to caringbridge and read Jacque's whole story and my heart broke, especially looking at photos of her three young girls.  So glad she got home to see them before she passed away.  I will pray for her family. Take care of yourself.  Valerie (Phil's wife)
