It is with a heavy heart that I am posting about the passing of my sweet mother-in-law, Carolyn. This photograph was taken a little over a year ago, shortly after she received the diagnosis of ovarian cancer.

This photograph was taken in Dallas on July 3rd, when we celebrated her 71st birthday party with her in the hospital.

She passed away on Wednesday, July 21st at her home surrounded by family. Carolyn is in a much better place, one without pain, sickness, and tears. Craig and I are flying to Dallas tomorrow for her memorial service on Wednesday. It’s very difficult to articulate what Carolyn meant to me, but one thing is easy to share: she raised the most wonderful, caring, giving, kind man and I am extremely privileged to call him my husband.

    Craig and Heather…my prayers are with you through this difficult time. Knowing she is not suffering and is in Heaven with God is a great comfort, but it is still very difficult to say good bye to a loved one. May our Heavenly Father give you the comfort, peace, and strength to make it through the next several days. All my love…

  • Heather & Craig (and kiddos), so sorry for your loss. I’m sure she was thrilled to spend her birthday and last days with those she loved. My thoughts are with you.

  • Hi Heather
    I came across your blog in the most round about way. I saw this post and my heart just sank. I lost my mom last year to breast cancer.
    I am so so sorry for your husband’s, yours and your family’s loss. I definitely understand!! You are right that she is in a much better place now and isn’t suffering.
    I pray that God will give you all peace and comfort!!!

    Love juliet
