Sad day. :(

My mother just found out via community newsletter today that one of me and my sister's beloved elementary school teachers recently passed away from breast cancer. :( Up to this point, I was fortunate enough to not have people I knew personally die from breast cancer, but this hit so close to home for my mother, sister, and I. It made us all a little teary-eyed. I wasn't able to stop re-reading the obituary...After returning home from surgery to remove brain tumors from BC, my mom has been relatively upbeat. But today, I could tell this really affected her. I keep trying to make her laugh and keep her spirits up, but once the laughter fades I can see the sadness in her eyes. This makes my heart very heavy. :/ I wish I would've stayed in better contact with her, and I think I can sense that my mom is wishing the same way.

Wherever you are located, please send a prayer to the family of Mrs. Elyce Kaplan.

Prayers to All.
