Livestrong 2011

Photo by Zoolatry

Today, October 2, Livestrong is hosting the wearing of the yellow to raise awarness of the many that live with cancer. This is a terrible disease that affects millions of people world-wide. Each of us probably know of someone fighting cancer now, has lost the fight or within the next couple of years will be affected by someone you know facing the fight of their life.  Wear the yellow today to help raise awareness and honor all that have had to deal with cancer.
In Memory
My uncle and mom Ca. 1950

What Cancer Cannot Do:
It cannot invade the soul,
suppress memories,
kill friendships,
destroy peace,
conquer the spirit,
shatter hope,
cripple love,
corrode faith,
steal eternal life,
silence courage.

Dedicated to:
Mom's family:
Raymond Young Little 1915-1992 Father
Ronald Ray Little-1942 brother
Elgie "Pat" Boise 1880-1956 Grandfather

Betty Gruber 1932-1995 Cousin
Luetta Buerher 1910-1992 Aunt

Gracie, we are sorry for all the losses in your family to cancer. But what a good strong list of things to remind us of what cancer CANNOT do.

We love that picture of you with your paw reaching up through the Livestrong bracelet.
