our youngest daughter, 36 yrs old, died on Oct....
Created By: Wilma Soulati

our youngest daughter, 36 yrs old, died on Oct. 13, 2006. A mother of 2 little boys and a family practice physician.

She had a rare cancer, peritonial mesothelioma, which is from asbestoes exposure 15-30 years ago. where and how she was exposed we have no idea.

Naturally all of her family, 3 sibs and my husband and I, and of course her husband and little boys. All of us coping as best we can.

About a month ago a neighbor came over to introduce herself.....the short time we have lived her has mostly been spent in Wisc. with our daughter. in the course of conversation i mentioned I was knitting a pair of socks and turns out she is an avid knitter also. most of her knitting these days is lapghans and prayer shawls of Hospice. I said I might be interested in doing that too as I certanily had plenty of leftover yarn from many years of projects. She's rounded up a small group of like minded ladies and they meet at Tim Horton's a couple times a week to knit. I did decide to join them.

I have knit many items in the last month and with each one I find a bit more easing of the pain. (here i sit crying) so the pain is there but not every moment. I have even gotten dad knitting lapghans.......he won't come to Tim Horton's to knit, imagine that, but most evenings he has his knitting in his lap working away.

Hospice was wonderful to us during the last days of Tracey's life and they were also there for us when my mom was in the last stages of small cell cancer. This is turning out to be helpful to me and others who need a little TLC.
