dixie carterAnytime I read about the loss of someone to cancer it brings me to a stop.  Last Saturday, April 10th, Dixie Carter died from complications arising from endometrial cancer.  She was married to actor Hal Holbrook since 1984.  A veteran of the stage and such TV shows as Designing Women, Dixie had a long successful career.

Anybody who has lost someone to cancer knows how devastating, painful and unrelenting this illness is. And all of us witnesses of the destruction remember how hard the people who lost the fight fought. In their memory we must embrace every moment of our lives with our love and attention.  It isn’t fair to squander our lives away in silly and negative thoughts when others have tried to hard to keep on living.

When we are faced with devastating loss we come face to face with our humanity.  Religion, race, gender and age become non-existing differences.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  ~Kahlil Gibran
