Crazy as a Loom

I can't let today go by without acknowledging that the world has lost a special person, no doubt there
is another angel in the heavens.

Vicky Westra.......fought her battle with breast cancer for 7 years.
She so wanted to stick around for her two sons.  She did her best.

I got to know her through our blogs, and then we talked back and forth.  So many times, when I started to feel sorry for myself and fought not to give in to the headaches,  I watched her clawing her way back to a normal life, enduring so much pain, and misery, just to stay with her family.

I told her she was my inspiration, and she clearly inspired so many.  She had a pure and loving spirit, a strength that was amazing to see.   I told her that I would see her someday, and I would be certainly be able to find her, because she would be surrounded by light, beautiful, shining light.

Fly high, sweet girl.   You've earned a rest from it all.

I am so sad to know she is' gone, and yet relieved that her suffering is over. Hoping she is right where she deserves to be - in a glorious Heaven enjoying peace at last.

I don't remember how I found Vicky ... probably here or on Karen's blog. I loved her spirit and her love for her family. She was an inspiration to me, too. I am sad for her family. She left behind a huge legacy through those of us she brought along on her journey.
