    • I was so surprised because they said on the news in the a.m. that Dr’s had stopped her medication and she was at home, nothing more to do for her.  When I left work I heard she passed at 10:15 a.m.  I lost both parents to cancer and to me, she looked healthy, good color to her skin and she never lost her hair.

    • it surprised me but I thought I had missed something as it’s UK - from just my perspective across the pond she seemed a very graceful and dignified lady who acted with class but her hubby seemed a slimeball

    • I was totally surprised myself because just the day before I read a beautiful piece that she had posted on fb.  The words she wrote was so encouraging and showed a tower of strength.  I pray for continued strength for the rest of her family especially her kids.

    • I’m totally surprised today to hear this sad news. I last saw her on the Nate Berkus Show last week and she was taking a new drug. Vicky, she was a graceful and dignified lady. I
      am sorry to hear of her passing.

    • Annie, perhaps you are projecting something on her because of her circumstance, thinking that it’s how you would be affected in her circumstance? She was sick but still caring about what mattered to her, being active and involved with new ventures. Someone with a broken heart doesn’t start a new life.

    • Yes, this was very sad news.  She was so young!  I think she did the right thing by talking about her upcoming death with her kids.  My mother who had Multiple Sclerosis for many years also talked about death quite a bit with me and I think it helped me deal with her death better.

    • I’m wondering if that is one of the reasons why she did the interview with Oprah.... meaning she knew she really wasn’t long for this world and she wanted to leave something a little more personal for her kids when they grew up.  

      I too believe that stress will impact your healing ability. I am so sad for her childrenheartbreak

    • I think she basically had no choice but to throw herself into life. When faced with an ending you hang on to every little piece you have. While stress and worry takes abit out of you it takes more out not to live.
      She knew her path was ending and her way to fight it was to make her last chapter her best and for her children.
      I am in awe and hold the greastest respect for her grace,courage,and love as she finished her lifes path.
      God bless her and help her family heal

    • Her sudden passing caught me by surprise, but once I heard that the doctors said there was nothing more they could do, that’s it. Even though life’s journey is imminent, the people you touch along the way is more important than the destination.

      What alarmed me even more this week is Aretha Franklin’s pancreatic cancer diagnosis. That form of cancer is even more insidious than breast, lung or colon. Prognosis is always rather iffy to say the least.
