Not long after that trip Judi was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it that time and went 12 years cancer free before it came back.
|Judi and Grant, her last Christmas with us|
When Rob and I met Judi and I were already friends and they hit it off as well. Judi spent a lot of time with us. She would come and spend weekends and we would do projects around the house. Major projects like deck building. We had no idea what we were doing but we figured it out as we went along. I have some awesome memories from those times.
Judi wasn't so lucky the second time she was diagnosed. Although she fought it for several years, when the cancer began to spread we knew she would eventually lose the battle. We had an agreement that when the time came she would come to our house for her last days. Judi has two grown children and I am so grateful to them for allowing me to keep that promise. She's been gone for several years not but the impact she made on my life and on the lives everyone she met can't be measured. I miss her every day.
Why has Judi been on my mind so much these days? Our newest granddaughter Clementine, was born on her birthday, October 1st. I'm pretty sure Clementine has a very special guardian angel.
