It's also a great opportunity to thank her for coming into my life and being such a wonderful friend, and example of strength, perseverance and love. This woman has beat some pretty incredible odds surviving Stage IV ovarian cancer, and has overcome many other personal trials.
Through it all, she maintains a fantastic sense of humor, quiet strength and resolve, and commitment to helping others through her gift.
Cheers to Judie, and to many many more birthdays to come!!! You are loved!! =)
