Mom's been gone almost 13 years now and there's not a day that passes that I don't miss her laughter and love. I wish that Kyle and Alani could have known their wonderful grandma.
So in her memory, I will be walking in Relay For Life - the annual fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.
If you're in the area, please come and join me! I'll be camped out in with Redwood City Employee team - Kyle is supposed to walk and camp out too and he's all excited! I'll definitely be walking some of the late night/early shifts. If you see people splatted with snow cone syrup - that's my team.
The Luminaria Ceremony is at dusk - hundreds of luminarias will be lit and will continue to glow all night long. Every year, as I read all the messages on the luminarias - happy & sad - I remember all the people I've lost to cancer - and those who are still fighting it.
