Jeanne passed on Saturday

I just wanted to update that Jeanne passed on Saturday morning. She is finally free of pain and is at peace. To those who are battling pancreatic cancer -believe there is hope, Jeanne was told she only had 6 months without chemo and 12 months with chemo. That was August 2019 so she lasted 2 years and 4 months. She went to hospice in Newmarket on the Wednesday and I cannot express how wonderful it was there and how the staff took care of us. Her son took her to a Maple Leaf game 3 weeks ago and it was one of the most special nights of her life. My Mum who is 91 is struggling with losing her as we all are. There will be a celebration of life in the spring. One of nephews works at a conservation area and it will be an outdoor event - if covid allows. Jeanne's obituary is online at Egan's funeral home in Bolton. Her picture was taken the night of the hockey game. If you take a moment to look you will see a gentle soul with the most beautiful smile. She never once complained at what she had to go through to stay with us. Beside the chemo she also went through months of dialysis. Jeanne leaves her two sons and 5 year old twin grandchildren. She was my sister and best friend, I will miss her terribly. I want to thank you for the support in reaching out to me along her journey.

It's taken me a few days to get it together to respond to this news. It took me back to some of the first posts I responded to after my wife died of pancreatic cancer.

My condolences. Take your time with the grief and let yourself feel the feelings. It is a loss.

To see the beautiful acceptance and peace that happened in this journey with your sister reinforces the value of what we do here. Thanks for the privilege of allowing us to accompany you on the journey with Jeanne.
