Thank you all for your kind words.
You are right Cherboug, Mum was really proud of me. I managed to get my Level 2 First Aid through my fire brigade in the last few days of her illness, (though it took a lot out of me as I was so tired and worried.) I’d also just told her that I was accepted by my brigade to do the fire equipment maintenance course. She was over the moon and I think it gave her some peace that I would not only be alright but that I was going to go “in leaps and bounds,” as she said. I was just happy to give her this joy by achieving for her.
Not only that but shortly before she became sick she made her own great achievement by obtaining a million dollar grant from the Queensland Government and creating and setting up residential houses for young people with disabilities who would otherwise be stuck in aged care hostels. We’re so proud of her also!
And many of you are right that she lives on in us and all around us. I am not sure where I stand on God but I do believe we all go on in some way. She is all around us I am positive. She is in the landscape, in certain colours and smells and songs and of course in our memories. And I feel she is also existing in some form that I cannot understand as yet.
I read her posts her frequently but did not feel to invade her space. She talked to me about you often and asked me if I had read this person’s post or that person’s post and she was so proud of herself when you gave her positive words of encouragement. She was dignified and brave through out her illness and she taught me that I can be the same.

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So sorry to hear about your Mom. She is at peace now and no longer suffers from this terrible cancer. You will always have your memories that you will hold near to your heart.
Go with God.

I lost my beloved Mother on March 5 and I know the devastation you must be feeling. Just know how much she loved you and her family and remember all the good times you all had. I am praying for your family and all of us in this same, insane boat.

Hi Melissa,as a fellow Australian I did follow Wendys progress.I am very sorry to hear your news,I know how hard it was for her living up North and having to travel long distances for scans etc.She spoke about her family so lovingly we could tell that she was a special type my sincere condolences JanetMarch 23, 2010 at 8:19 am #3346melissaParticipant
I am the daughter of “wendyvp.” I have been logging on and reading your website and general discussions over the past seven months while she has been ill.
Mum passed away today at around 1:50pm Melbourne time. She was not alone, her sister was with her with her when she went. We children spent quality time with her over the last few months. She knew how well loved she was by her children and grandchildren alike.
Thank you all who were a source of encouragement and support for her during that time. I know this website helped her a lot during her illness and we feel gratitude to all who showed an interest in her and who cared for her.
I wish you all the best for yourselves and your families. Thinking of all those who have to deal with cholangiocarcinoma.
Love and best wishes,
