Through Death to Life
Ron Gries


Cancer is a construction zone on the journey we call life. We are, after all, always a "work in progress." Cancer is seldom the enemy, though it is made to be one. Defeat is not realized in disease or in death. The "enemy" is in the losing of the story of a person, in frustrating our right to sorrow's valley and hope's horizon. The author, is writing about the journey of and with his still quite young wife, offers courage to the sick and dying and to those who, for reasons of love, must accompany them. He offers clarity for the frightened and hope for the dismayed. He also reminds us that death, it it is for a spouse, is always too soon, always about a loved one died far too young.
