In Memory

My sweet friend Jill passed away yesterday morning, after a nearly year-long fight with cancer. Jill was a graduate of Miami University and earned her Masters Degree from the University of Cincinnati. Jill was a special education teacher who loved her work. She was diagnosed just 2 months before her wedding to her brave and wonderful husband, J.T. For her friends, Jill was always a ray of sunshine, she loved life and had cheerful words for everyone each and every day. We all certainly miss her.

J.T. has started a Stand up to cancer team in her memory, with the goal of raising money for cancer research and increasing the awareness of this rare but very serious form of cancer. I have already joined and hope my friends will too. Jill was a fighter til the end and I am proud to take up her fight now!!
