My name is Sue. I am a 55 year old divorced 2 years ago. I barely survived that pain and loss (20 year married). Left me for of course, a younger woman. I lost everything. He had been planning his departure for a year. I am on this wonderful support site because June 7, 2011 my adorable, loving, strong, wonderful best friend and mother Nancy Preston died from complications from chemo therapy (throat cancer). She had been a heavy smoker but quit 20 years ago. Her lungs were damaged and her heart just gave out. So in the end the cigarettes took her life. Ironically, she spent the last 20 years being healthy and taking such great care of her body. But the cancer came anyway. She suffered terribly with chemo and radiation. I wanted to take her place but God declined that request. She was the ONLY person who ever truly loved me as I am. Mother raised 4 daughters on her own after the cruelest man possible left us, his name was Clive Waxman. We all suffered because of his choices. His selfishness changed the course of all of our lives. If there is a hell...he is the doorman. Mother ...I miss you every minute since you were taken. She had such faith and she went to be with her Lord. She was ready. I witnessed her join Him and take her last breath. I have put my life and whatever journey I am suppose to continue on in Gods hands. I am ready for the Lord to tak me any time he chooses to. Thank you Mother for loving me, supporting me and for always being there for me. I will join you as soon as the Lord will allow me. Until then ...
