    Yesterday a friend of mine from high school passed away from cancer. She was a wonderful woman who was the mother of a special needs child. In her quest for finding peace in her heart (she had been battling cancer for five years and knew, like we all know, that she would one day leave her son behind), she helped found a place where she knows her son will be able to live out his adult life with honor and grace. She was truly a warrior mom. Here is a link to the place she was instrumental in creating: http://www.peacehavenfarm.org/
    RIP Susan

    I'm so sorry... Your friend was an extremely strong, loving, and determined person to be able to create Peacehaven Farm while battling cancer. She left her son a very special place to be able to call home someday. She was a truly amazing individual and I'm sure she is going to be greatly missed by many people.

    Thinking of you.... Hugs.... SFR
