Home Hospice

Deb has asked me to share this with you.  Sweet friends – after nearly 2 years of struggling with acute myeloid leukemia cancer, I am going on Home Hospice. This brings me peace, relief, and I feel the love even deeper.  Thank you all! The best way to support me now is ease and flow to the Great Spirit home. Namaste. Mahalo. Trust.

From Mary Lou:  I am so blessed and proud to have Deb, my beautiful, loving daughter, who has enriched my life in so many ways and given me so much joy.  I know from the many messages of praise and love for Deb that we receive that she has played a big role in the lives of countless people, and been an inspiration for many to follow their dreams.  Through my sadness I rejoice in Deb’s beautiful life which has been a gift to me.  Deb has battled her leukemia long and hard, and now has arrived at a feeling of peace.  I marvel at how she has handled her illness from the initial shock of the diagnosis, through the many ups and downs, and the difficult treatments and lengthy hospitalizations.  Deb has fought with intensity and given it her all, just as she has approached everything in her life.

We thank our friend and Spirit Rock teacher Debra Chamberlin Taylor, who has been a wonderful support to Deb, Andy and me over the past couple of months in guiding us through this process of transition. We thank our families and friends for the love and support you have provided, and are grateful to Deb’s closest friends for your devotion to Deb, being here so much to provide moral support, assistance, healing, and lots of love.

Thank you for keeping Deb in your prayers.
With love and gratitude,
Mary Lou

    Dearest Deb and Mary Lou,

    We too are relieved for you both.

    What gives you peace and loving ease

    Is reflected in our hearts for you.

    I don’t know if you have listened to Frank Ostaseski’s CD’s.

    You might find them comforting.

    So much love to you.

    “My throat is sore” John Wilbye
    No. 27 from “The 1st Set of Madrigals,” published 1598

    My throat is sore, my voice is hoarse with skriking [crying],
    My rests are sighs, deep from the heart’s root fetched;
    My song runs all on sharps, and with oft striking
    Time on my breast, I shrink with hands outstretched;
    Thus still, and still I sing, and ne’er am linning [ceasing],
    For still the close points to my first beginning.
