Aunt Andrea

Today is the one year anniversary of my Aunt Andrea's passing from this life into her eternal life in Heaven. She was an amazing woman of strength and courage. She battled breast cancer for 8 years strong. She never wanted you to ask how she was, instead she wanted to know how you were and what you were doing. And when you did ask how she was, she always said Great with a smile on her face even with painful blisters on her feet from the chemo she was taking or pain in her back from one drug or another. She always wanted people not to view her as sick but rather just to see her as living. Living her life to the fullest. She walked 5+ miles a day, traveled and enjoyed her time to the fullest. It is an example we should all value and live by, enjoy each and every moment of every day. Thank God for every sweet minute you can with those you love. I love you Aunt Andrea and hold you close in my heart every day.
