We lost a champion this month, who left us with advice

I just mentioned Amy Jackson in this blog back at the end of May - she had been diagnosed on April 15th: http://cheekylibrarian.blogspot.com/2010/05/adenoid-cystic-carcinoma-in-news.html. I just learned that she died on July 3rd. My sympathies go out to her husband and 6 children, and all of the community that has supported the family during this rough road. I took a look at her blog: http://kissesforamy.blogspot.com/, and found that she had given us all advice to follow. I include a quote here:

"Enjoy the simple things in life... Every minute you spend with your children even doing the simple mundane things of everyday life is important... Take time to make the most of every little thing you do with and for your children. Enjoy time talking to and listening to your kids even when talking about the most simple topics. cherish every minute with your family. Never take for granted the little moments. We often remember and think about major moments and events in our families lives, but I am now convinced that it is a combination of all the little things, things that we do or say during everyday living, that make up what we really know and remember about each other. It is those things that really develop the relationships that we cherish. Consciously put to memory the little precious moments with each family member. Don't take for granted all the little things in life. Take the time to count your blessings, be grateful for every minute (even the hard ones or times when you may want to pull your hair out), take time to share your love with each of your family members, and Enjoy the simple things..."
