rest in peace, punk rock mommy

There's a blog I read, one I found a while ago and have never commented on, it's been a one way relationship, she fed me with her strength and beauty and love and I gave nothing in return. Somehow it felt intrusive, her life was coming to an end and to inject myself seemed inappropriate and unfair so instead I sat silent, rooting for her every single day.

She lost her battle today, this brave and brillant woman who's endured so much and now her loving, amazing family is sad and suffering and again there are no words, they are strong and beautiful and broken hearted and cancer is horrible and I am so, so sorry for your loss.

Rest in peace, Andrea, I hope you are finally resting in peace.

I can understand why you never said anything, but i bet she would have loved you too.

Thank you for sharing this. You are honoring her memory by sharing her story with dignity, as you do all those whose stories you share.

Thanks for this, it is a lovely tribute. I was another one on the internet scared to visit her site this past week, but also praying she got the relief she was ready for.
Take care, Lindsay

I read her posts last week when WhyMommy linked to her... I, like you, read without commenting because it felt I'd found her too late in the game and I didn't have standing or footing or anything to offer her, and it felt intrusive. Still, I prayed for her and her family, and I am so sorry to hear about her death.
