    Eve,

    I have not checked in in a while. I can’t believe that your dad passed away. I am so sorry for your loss.

    It also just happens that I posted the penny story after my mom passed away. She would never pass a penny on the ground without picking it up because she truly believed that someone above left it for her. After she died my sister said while she was vacuuming she kept finding pennies in places she had already vacuumed. The next day my brother said he found a penny (I don’t remember where he found his)and the date was a significant one(again I’m not sure if it was the year he was born or the year my parents married). Anyway, I had made some joke about making any date on a penny a significant one like 1984 being the year she got that bad haircut and had to go to an event.

    Still, I was upset that I had not received a penny. I was supposed to go to a wedding the Friday right after my mom’s funeral. I didn’t think I would feel up to going but didn’t know what to do. I went to get my haircut Friday morning just in case (tears in my eyes). I remember thinking as I was paying when am I going to find a penny. Some change fell out of my wallet and into my purse and I’m saying to myself “are these my pennies? No I wouldn’t be questioning it if they were. I closed my pocketbook and noticed on the floor just next to where I was standing a single penny. The year on the penny, 1984, the year I was kidding around about. I knew this was my penny.

    I just found another penny which I’m sure she left because I had just been thinking about her and my birthday just passed and my father forgot. The year on the penny was the year I was born.

    I hope I didn’t bore you. I hope you find your penny.

    Karen,
    I understand the pain you are going through. My mother passed away from this dreadful disease almost 2 1/2 years ago. Sometimes it feels like a million years ago and sometimes it seems like just yesterday. I still cry from time to time. You will always miss him but it will get easier. The comfort of family and friends will help you through. My condolences.

    Kathy,
    So sorry about your loss. I know the heart ache you are feeling. I lost my mom last year to this dreadful illness and while the heartache is still there at times it does lessen.

    May you find peace and comfort through the support of your family and friends.

    lindajo,
    Sometimes I wish my mom would have stayed with supportive care. I wonder if she would still be here if she refused these new treatments. Except for having to go for her bi-weekly shot and occasional transfusion she lived a quite normal life. No one knew how sick she was. So I agree with you, depending on the case sometimes supportive care is the right choice.

    Dear Sigit,

    How heartbreaking. I have 2 daughters and a son myself and can only imagine the pain you must be feeling. I pray that you find peace within and the strength to go on.

    I’m with you. It’s so tragic and I feel so helpless up here in NY. I even just sent an e-mail to our town supervisor to open the doors to our town YMCA that’s been closed and just sitting there useless for over 2 years. I don’t know how the’d get up here but I bet those people would go anywhere at this point.

    All very interesting points but very confusing for my simple mind. I find it hard to believe a cancer cure could be kept quiet for that long. There couldn’t possibly be that many immoral people. I also don’t think there will be “a” cure. Too many different kinds of cancer withh different classifications. I can see, however, that natural treatments may be ignored in favor of drugs making money for the pharmaceutical companies.

    Has anyone read the book “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About” by Kevin Trudeau. I’ve seen him on television and have considered buying the book just haven’t gotten around to it. Just curious to find out what’s inside.
