A loss

Another young woman lost her life to breast cancer yesterday. Maura was a much loved wife, mother of three sons and friend to many. She slipped away in her sleep, surrounded by family members. She was three weeks away from her 40th birthday. A party had been planned, the invites had been posted. A holiday had been booked in June. Now a funeral is being planned and another young life has been cut short.

It's not right. It's just not right. I know that's hardly eloquent but I don't have words today.

I'm so very sorry. Cancer sucks - I can't be eloquent about it either. :(
