Dear Mom,

hi friends.
I wanted to share with you a letter that my cousin Cindy wrote to her Mom. April marks a year since my Aunt experienced complete healing from Cancer, this healing resulted in her passing. Thank you to those who have prayed for my cousins (her children) and the entire family.

I remember everything like it was yesterday. It was Mikey's birthday. Our family of 7, Jorge, your mom, and your sister, Damaris, crammed into your tight hospital room to celebrate. It was hard to see you lying weakly in that hospital bed. The jaundice had finally spread over your entire body, your lips purple from dehydration, and the fragileness of your body because of the drastic weightloss- It was hard enough to see you with that IV in you.

When it came time for me to cut the cake, I passed a piece to everyone except you. The doctor said that you weren't allowed to eat or drink anything but ice. As I began to close the cake box I specifically remember hearing you softly, telling me to just cut you a small piece. It was as if you were ok.. I gave you a bite sized piece. I didn't think that a piece so small would burn the inside of your mouth. As soon as you started begging for ice to ease the pain, I knew you were never getting out of there. (Continue here)
