My Son Dustin and Myself would
like to dedicate this page to Doris Fay Pope. Mom of Susan Brokmeyer (Dustin's Aunt)
March 17, 1933 - December 16, 1994
My mom, Doris Fay Pope lost her 20 year battle to breast cancer 14 years ago. My mom
was a wonderful mom as well as my best-friend. She is my inspiration, my strength and my hero. I can only pray
that I am 1/2 the person she was. Mom never cried or complained. She would take her chemo and go to work. The
times she would be hospitalized the nurses would tell her "Mrs Pope, you would feel better if you cried". Mom would
reply "why would I cry, I am alive". Mom was a fighter and a believer. She lived to see all her grand children
and cherished every minute she had with them. When my mom's day came to go home (Dec. 16th) I was alone by her side.
I was holding her hand telling her how much I loved her and that it was okay for her to go home. Mom took her
last breath. To this day I am thankful I had that last moment with mom and that I was with her. Mom is my Angel
and I never have fear because I know she is with me. When I am having a bad day I go to the cemetery and we talk :-)
It has been 14 years since she has been gone and the progress that has been made to fight breast
cancer is remarkable. October 17th is mom's birthday and each year on this day I have a mammogram. That is my
gift to my mom (she always worried about me). I can still hear her reminding me to go have one. I love my mom
so much and I will always miss her. She is in my heart and by my side every second of each day. Mom you are my
inspiration, my strength and my here - I love you Mom!!
I have to praise the Susan G.
Komen for the Cure foundation. They do so much and have for many years. To learn more go to www.komen-houston.org

Hello, Pretty Lady!
You have been hit!
You have been considered one of the
10 prettiest ladies with a kind, warm and loving heart. Once you have been hit, you have to hit 10 pretty ladies with kind, warm and loving hearts. If you get hit again, you know you're really
pretty and kind. If you fail to forward this, you'll have ugliness for 10 years. So hit 10 pretty ladies to let them know they are pretty -- both on
inside and the outside - and that they are loved and cared for.
SEND THIS TO PRETTY LADIES, TO BRIGHTEN THEIR
DAY, INCLUDING THE ONE WHO SENT IT
TO YOU! REMIND LADIES TO BE INFORMED, AWARE AND BE CHECKED FOR THEIR HEALTH'S SAKE. TELL THEM THAT NO ONE WANTS TO LOSE
THEM - AFTER ALL, THEY ARE PRETTY LADIES WITH KIND, WARM LOVING HEARTS......
All you are asked to do is keep this circulating
(even if to one person).
In memory of anyone you know that has been
struck by cancer.
Do it for yourself. It
only takes a few minutes out of your life to be checked. I do it every year on my mom's birthday. That is my gift
to her each year. In Memory Of My Mom!! Susan
Tribute To Edith McDonald (Aunt Cookie)
By Patty Lovell and Her Angel Brother
Gary Haywood (Bubba)
My aunt's name was Edith McDonald but all that knew and loved her
called her "Cookie". She was born February 12, 1943 and received her angel wings March 17, 2008. Cookie passed almost a year
to the date that she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Cookie grew up in Nashville, Tennessee until age twelve when her family moved
to Birmingham, Alabama. She
attended Phillips High School
and at age sixteen she married Carl McDonald and they were married for thirty-two years. They have one son, Tim who lives
in Cullman, Alabama. At age
twenty-five Cookie received her GED and began work for South trust Bank. She was a woman with many talents and worked in the
card center, auditing department, comptroller office,and accounting department. When she retired, just seven days short of
thirty years, she was Assistant Vice President. What an amazing journey. I pray that we would all use our abilities and gifts
to work in different areas to find a Cure for this awful disease and just see how God will Bless us all. My Aunt Cookie was
faithful to God's will and will be soarly missed.
This poem is what I sent to my aunt when her hair started to fall out from Chemo. it put a smile on her
You Want Attitude, I'll Give You Attitude!!!
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed
she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today."? So she did and she had a wonderful
day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
"Hmmmmmmmm, " she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today."? So she did and she had a grand day. The
next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "Today I'm
going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the
mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEAH!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"
ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING! Have a Good Day! Letter
