In loving memory of Danette Velez, wife and mother of five, a caring soul I was privileged to cross paths with, who ended her battle with cancer on Thursday morning, September 20, 2007. Here is an excerpt from her journal:
Life is messy work
I read a quote from an anonymous writer the other day. It said, “Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty, well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming, “Wow! What a ride!”
