"Rilke%20on%20sadness%20and%20solitude.html I came across this online today. I find some of my days are best spent in this kind of quiet, sometimes sad and painful, but reflective thought. The pain reminds me that I loved--and that I still love--and…"

Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a former student of literature, now disabled esthetician.
About my Loss:
I lost my dearest friend in the world, one of the instructors at my MA program in grad school. We bonded over writing, books, and smoking on the steps on the English building. We didn't see each other for 13 years of our friendship but talked on the phone several times a day. I saw him when he died of a short struggle with cancer he was diagnosed with five months before. He shaped my world no matter how far we were part geographically. David was a born teacher: well-informed, a constant learner, and he read widely and deeply.
Our friendship consisted of more than our teacher-student relationship in the world of facts and fictions. We guided and taught one another about life itself, death and surviving, illness and madness, and how to find sanity, peace, and faith.
