What’s in a name? It’s a worthwhile question. For example, the name of this blog is the “Pink Herald”. It was a fairly easy name to come up with. After all, this blog was inspired by my sister, Kathi, who passed away from breast cancer, several years before she would ever have seen the tender age of 40.
Yes, she was a mother, to three wonderful girls. Yes she was a daughter, survived by her mother, as her father lost his own cancer battle years prior. Yes, she was a sister, the middle sister, to be exact. Her breast cancer didn’t care about those facts. It didn’t care we’d have less than a year with her once she was diagnosed.
Since I created this blog, my youngest sister and I have both been diagnosed with cancer. My sister has the same strain of breast cancer that took Kathi. I have colon cancer. I am still working, still homeschooling and speaking my mind (on a variety of topics).
This blog in dedicated to her memory. She always had something say. She didn’t mince words (and neither do I). You knew where you stood with her. Honesty and integrity are two words that summed up my sister. I hope this blog does her memory justice.
“Over You” by Miranda Lambert became Kathi’s song the day my she lost her battle. A song of two siblings; one alive and one who’s passed. Still chokes me up, almost 6 years later.
Disclosure: I have no claim on this song or video and I’m not affiliated with it any way. I am simply sharing a memory.
