I knew that if/when the inevitable would happen, then, just then, I would have to have my heart and soul prepared.
And so it was.
Yesterday, after months following Linda Carlgren’s blog on her fight against the cancer monster, we were told she had lost it.
Linda, who for just a week ago, was sitting and sharing her life with us, though her dreadful pain. Linda, who was building a new play-kitchen for her kids. Linda, who always had a smile on her face and amazingly tried to find the silver lining on everything. Linda who never gave up.
I have to admit that I had a hole in my heart all day. As if someone loved had just been blown away as fast as an autumn leave in the wind.
I think of her husband Lars and her four children. I think of her one year old baby who will grow up without a mother. I think that I’m happy I’m doing something to help out people who have the misfortune of having a dreadful disease in their lives.
I hope that our pictures will help the family remember how much Linda loved them and what a wonderful person she was.
Please help us spread the word about our project:
