Seven Eight years ago today SciCom sent you 30 yellow roses (I bet if they knew pink was your favorite rose they would have sent it instead) to celebrate your 30th Anniversary at the company; no matter that you hadn't been able to work since May.
Seven Eight years ago today Mantha, Jim, Bruce Gram and I had birthday cake in your room. We opened gifts - including a Pooh Bear blanket that she still sleeps with - celebrating Mantha's 4th birthday. You slept through the whole party, we tried to wake you, but you were too tired.
Seven Eight years ago today you reached two milestones you promised yourself you would. Your "to do" list was as short as your time left with us. The last item you never knew came true 1 year and 9 days later. He was due to come on your D day, but he waited until the time was right.
Seven Eight years ago today we knew your time was short. So we savored every moment like it was your last.

I do declare!
My Personal Pledge
This will be my 3rd year as the Chair of my local Relay For Life, and my 6th year as a participant. This year, my Relay For Life event will break 1 MILLION TOTAL DOLLARS RAISED! In a county of less than 12,000 people, that is an amazing feat!
I always declare $100 as my personal "cash" goal, separate from the other fundraising I do with my team, and separate from my luminary fundraising. This year, I am celebrating 5 years Cancer free, so I am amping it up a bit and declaring $1,000 as my personal "cash" goal!
If you would like to read my story, purchase a luminary to be lit on Friday July 30th, 2010 at my Relay, or make a donation towards my personal goal, please visit my personal Relay For Life page at http://main.acsevents.org/goto/lori.nusbaum
If you would like to attend our Relay event, contact me and I will get you more details! I would love to have you join us!!! Thank you in advance! lo
