I went to a remembrance ceremony for my friend Sam.
I don’t exactly remember when I first met Sam, but I know it was at a BCRA Stage 4 group meeting. We grew closer over this past year after losing another friend from our group when we leaned on each other.
She was a spunky lady who was not afraid to tell it how it is...probably why we got alone so well!
She was prepared for her passing and put together her service - which was so lovely.
“The end of a life is the sum of the Love that was lived in it. Being here for all the moments of Love has blessed me beyond measure.” Sam wrote.
I think this sums up life beautifully - it is truly all about Love - the Love we give and receive, the Love God has for each and every one of us.
Sam also wrote, “Please don’t think or say I lost the battle or war. I am a Cancer Lifer! I didn’t choose this but I tried hard to stay longer. I live, I died, I still Loved - and I found Love stronger than ever.”
I absolutely love this and want to share it with you - you don’t have to have metastatic breast cancer to truly know how freaking precious and wonderful Life truly is.
To you my friend.
I will see you up there one day.
