Hi Colleen:
Thanks for the friend request. It's so hard to manage everything alone. It's so nice to be able to talk to someone who understands what I am going through. Looking forward to talking with you again.

Colleen,

Thanks for friending me.  We seem to have a lot in common...state, age..husbands passing from cancer... I will look forward to talking to you more in the future, and wish you well on your journey.

hi Colleen,

it will be good to have someone I can talk to. Cancer was a horrible disease to watch the person you love die from. Thanks for "friending" me.
