Well, things have been rough lately. A neighbor who I really looked up to unfortunately passed away a few days ago. About three or four years ago, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. They were able to get it out, but the cancer returned. The doctors did warn her that there could be many risks and a stroke is what took her life. She was only 48 and still had many things in life she wanted to do. Her wonderful partner just passed her ambulance test and will now be a paramedic, but the woman that she loved wasn't there. I told her that I would be more than happy to watch after her pets when she worked. All I ask of you guys is to send positive thoughts to my neighbor. She will be needing it.
My neighbor really was my hero. She taught me how to be strong and even made me feel better when I was struggling with depression a couple years ago. She told me to keep my head held high when I was struggling with getting accepted into college. Things worked out in the end for me, but it just breaks my hear that she won't be here anymore. She touched the lives of many people. Rest in peace, Dana and thank you for your kind words to me. You will be missed deeply.
