One of my very closest friends---Rana---is my hero.
She has lost her Pop (grandfather) and her father all within the last year to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
As Rana told me...her dad always said "it is what it is"
so that is what she has been reciting in her mind as she tries to stay strong--
taking care of her Nana and Stepmom.
But what about Rana?
That is why she's my hero.
Even when her world has come crashing down...she picks herself back up.
This brings me to a favor I need to ask of you.
If you get a moment....please say a prayer for Rana
(and her family if you'd be so kind)....
"prayer requires more of the heart than the tongue."
***Oh and hey Pops and Kevin? I'm gonna make sure your little girl keeps laughin' that great big laugh. We miss you dearly.***
