Farewell my sweet cousin

My heart is breaking as I have recently been told of the passing of my sweet cousin in-law, Jolene Davidson.
Jolene married Ronnie when I was a young teenager and I have always looked up to the sweet person that she is. I was never close to Ron and Jolene due to our age difference but that didn't diminish my admiration of them. Cancer took her home to her Heavenly Father last Wednesday and she will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.

Evan - I'm SO sorry for your loss. I so hate this disease. I hate that families are affected by it as miserably as they are. I pray that a cure is found and that no one else has to experience a loss like you and your family just have. My thoughts and prayers are with you always - Kristin
