    OMG, that was so fast, just unbelievable. The last I had heard she was doing well and responding to treatment. She looked good. Her poor son; the Lord acts in strange ways sometimes. Why, why? Beautiful woman, inside and out.

    I too thought she was responding well to treatment. I guess it was farther along than they thought. I guess God and Christopher needed her up there. Poor Will. I wonder who he will live with?

    Wow! I'm stunned too. I was so hoping she would be ok after announcing her illness. She seemed to be such a sweet and wonderful person.

    May she rest in peace. Bless her family and friends.

    I was so deeply touched by her courageous efforts on behalf of her husband and am so saddened to hear of her death. Like all of you, I was stunned to hear it. I pray that her son will be okay. I think Dana had a sister who was helping with him, but I'm not sure if that's accurate.

    I think he has an older sister and brother, half-siblings, from Chris's first marriage.

    I don't know what to say. I had no idea that her cancer had progressed so quickly. I'm shocked.

    May she rest in peace with her beloved Christopher. :angel: :angel: God Bless them both.

    Their poor son. He's been through so much. I'm keeping him in my prayers.

    Some people seem to have to shoulder more than their share. I hope she is being rewarded now, with peace and seeing Christopher again. I hope her son has strong family around him, poor kid.
