To my beautiful sister Joan. I love and miss you so much. More now that when you first left us. Everyday that you are gone is one more day spent without you. You were the strongest person I knew and to be taken from us (your family) has been the hardest to accept. I will always cherish the memories we made and will never forget your love, strength, and courage. I love you Joanie!!

It is so amazing to hear your story, and I can arsuse you that your daughters will never foget you, and I will pray for you to be able to see them grow up. As a daughter of a grandmother that survived breast cancer, I know embracing every minute is so important. This must be so difficult for you and you are so strong. You’ve inspired me to be strong with all of my failures and to get up and dust myself off. Thank you so much for the inspiration.Love,Samantha Grace

Ahaha, well, I can’t really say that there’s an affeilrte for sure, but if there is one then I’m sure you’ll go straight down to Mr. Lucifer’s place, eh? Either way, it’s good to know that you probably won’t survive this, because you clearly lack the intellect to make it in modern society. Consider cancer mercy for taking you from a life you weren’t capable of living in the first place, ungrateful prick.
