What a beautiful tribute to your mom! You and your family have been such a strong support for her. She has had a long road of this sickness to deal with and you all have been their for her. You, Michele, Lori and your father have been so dedicated to helping, listening, and getting her through the rough patches. Your mom has also been a strong support for you during your teen years. She has always been their for all your needs, She has directed you in the right path which sometimes for you, might have been hard in your decision making. But look at the woman you have turned out to be. I am so proud of you and your family in handling such a terrrible illlness with dedication and love. And I am sure your mother feels the same way. All in all, she is cancer-free. Thank God! Love you, Aunt Jan

As Marla,s uncle I am more than moved by this article that she has written about her mom, Gail ,who is and has always been a rock for her family throughout there lives. My sister has seen how it has paid off to stand your ground, even when your decision for your children are not always favorable. Gail has always been a mother and friend to her 3 girls (mother first) . God knows Gail is extremely proud of her 3 adult children and husband Frank. My brother-in-law Frank, whose unwavering support along with their 3 wonderful kids, Michele, Lori ,and of course Marla gave my sister the courage and strength to combat and defeat a disease that could have defeated her. I am proud to write this as I watched the support Gail has given to her family over the years be returned to her especially when she needed it the most. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY LOVE BOB
