Both tears and laughter

These past three days I traveled to St. Louis for my cousin Victoria’s memorial services. She was only 51, and died after a courageous two year battle with cancer.  She was a big inspiration in my own battles with cancer during that same time period. My cousins made the services special with music, recollections and tributes. It was good to be with family as we shared both tears and laughter to grieve, remember and celebrate.
