I was waiting to post this video until I was sure that it was okay and already made public. It's now on Facebook.
Jean Holbrook is my sister and we spend a lot of time hoping and praying. Please everyone, heed the message.

My sympathies.

Thats a strong reason to fold. I could never imagine your pain watching much less her pain enduring.

update

I am posting this because I had my sisters blessing to do so.

After a 3 year battle with melanoma my sister passed yesterday morning 6-27-12 in a hospice home after entering less than 24 hours earlier.

She was proud of me for my efforts in distributed computing and therefor proud of everyone that has contributed to the cause.

My efforts are mainly with the EVGA team now but I still consider this team my home team and all of you my friends. Special thanks to you Cliff and the job you did here.

Keep up the good fight everyone in whatever way you can.
Yo

I'm so sorry to hear this Yodap, my sincere condolences. Rest in peace Jean.

Your sister is very rightly proud of you and your efforts in helping find a cure via DC.

Sorry for your loss Yodap.

I wrote this for a friend many years ago who lost her mother and I also tried to choke through it at my Grandmother's funeral, perhaps it will be of some comfort to you as well ...

Do Not Mourn For Me

Cry not for me, for I
Am in a better place.
I have gone to Heaven
To look on Jesus face.

My earthly body ceased
But, mere death holds no bonds.
For my spirit soars upward
Heavenbound, I will live on.

Remember when I wiped your
Tears and held you very tight;
Now I can help the angels
Watch O'er you every night.

Please do not mourn my passing.
Instead, Revel in my life.
My spirit soars with angels ...
No more suffering or strife.

This body may be gone, but
Death for me is not an end.
I may learn from the masters, or
Return to earth as your child's friend.

I have lived, loved, and laughed,
Happier I couldn't be.
I lived life to the fullest,
Please, do not mourn for Me.

- Brian

Thank-you guys.

TM that was wonderful and captures the spirit she had in life.

I expect I'll have one more good cry when I see the faces on her young grandchildren at the service then it will turn to a celebration of her life.

Thanks again for "listening"
