So today, out of the clear blue sky, something made me come here again. And the very first thing I saw was Drake's post in Ro's journal. And then I read back through her last few posts with tears running down my face. I was so convinced that she'd be well and would have beaten this awful thing by now, by sheer force of will alone, that it never dawned that she might not. I fully expected to see a post about her recent tumors not growing and how the chemo was working to shrink them. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think she wouldn't make it. Never.
Right now, I'm too emotional to post much more tonight. But Ro, you were always my hero. You always will be. Tonight, YOU are immortal in our hearts and you live in our memories.
Hugs to you all - Ro's extended family and friends here in Cyberland. Tonight, we grieve together; tomorrow, and every day after, until we see her again, we celebrate Ro for everything she was and for all the light she brought into this world.
