I met Yolanda through her blog - "Giving it a shot" in early 2010.
She was several months into a project to post a photo a day.
On December 4, 2009, Yolanda was diagnosed with cancer.
The very same day that I was rushed to the ER with a moderate stroke.
We had an instant bond.
Yolanda's postings slowed down a bit due to chemo and radiation therapy taking their toll, and she hadn't posted since December 2010.
Yesterday, Yolanda's blog posted her last post. Her husband/best friend/soul mate wrote to let us know that she had lost her battle with cancer, and quietly slipped away on April 8, 2011.
I will miss you, Yolanda. Even though we never met in person ... you were an inspiration to me, and I kept you in my prayers.
I post this heart for you.
I hope where you are now ... you will know how much you are missed here ...
