Five years, OMG

Adrienne has been gone for 5 years now, and while we miss her as much as ever, life does go on. It scares me that she's so far away, that I'm forgetting some of the little things. I went through family pictures not long ago and enjoyed them immensely, laughing and crying at the same time. I also have old videos but no machine to play them on (I know I need to get them moved to CD). I'd give anything just to have another day with her, to hold her and comfort her. Pictures and memories will just have to do. We've lost several really important people in our lives this year, especially Bekah, Lucho, and Joe. Have I mentioned recently how much I hate cancer? It sounds cliché, but it's so important to hold those close to you, to tell them how much you love them. Life is too short for too many.

Five years and I still check Adrienne's blog from time to time... I am a Hodgkin's survivor who was positively impacted by you (Alison) and Adrienne's outlook on life - so much so that I still check in after all of these years. Wishing you peace and happiness with those surrounding you here and in the the heavens.

I will pray for Adrienne and you. I'm battling Hodgkins and do not fear leaving this earth. We are the masters of time and memory. When you and your daughter are reunited in Heaven, this chasm of time will be but a wink; and, you will embrace her again with the full glory of all memory of each other's love. God Bless you! You were and are an incredible human and mother.

I was also inspired by you both. My husband is 2 time survivor. Your knowledge, and Adrienne's spirit were so helpful. As odd as it sounds, you and Adrienne have often been in my thoughts. Wishing you peace and joy this holiday season.
