May 2014, the world lost an amazing woman - our Aunt Donna - after several years long battle with cancer. It was absolutely heartbreaking and gut wrenching to see her in so much pain and excruciatingly sad to lose her. She was much beloved by all us, and touched so many lives as daughter, mother, sister, aunt, friend, gardener, teacher ... she is truly missed.
Our aunt's passing is a somber reminder that nothing in life is a guarantee. You can live your life by the books, and make decisions that you think are great, but there's never a promise that tomorrow will come. All you can do is to enjoy the time you have today, with the people that you love, doing things that you enjoy and enhance your life's happiness - in other words, stop and smell the roses.
