Michelle Edwards, the blogger at Sweet Something Designs, lost her battle with cancer on January 10, 2014.
Michelle started her blog in 2009, the same year I started this blog. I was one of her readers.
She decorated her home, took care of her husband, Justin, and two sons, Keegan and Logan.
Michelle made gorgeous wreaths. She had an Etsy shop as well as a space in a local antique mall where she lived in Joplin, Missouri.
Michelle With Short Hair:
She wrote: Justin asked me: “Are you ever going to let your hair grow long again?”
I’m getting back to him on that.
Michelle did everything she could possibly do to beat cancer. She kept a positive attitude and stayed strong for her family.
And she was silly and playful with her children.
A Trial Drug Did Not Work:
Michelle had hoped that a trial drug would work so she would be cancer-free.
She wanted to see her sons grow up to be men. To see them marry and have children.
Michelle wanted to live.
I read this in her final blog post on October 18th…
From Her Final Blog Post:
The news is not good. CT scans revealed the tumors are larger…which means the trial drug isn’t working. So it’s over. Just like that. I’m upset. I’m very disappointed and quite devastated. I thought this was going to be IT!! I realize there is no cure for my cancer, but the drug promised to stop the growth so I can live with the cancer and it didn’t.
We will miss you, Michelle. Your blog, your creations, your gorgeous smile.
Your cute short hair.
Comment On Her Facebook Page:
This is a comment on her Facebook page: Michelle I am pretty sure you insisted on crafting your own Angel wings in Heaven and I know they will be the most amazing ones there.
Michelle, you were a lovely and talented woman, and you will be missed by your blog family. You were taken from this world far, far too soon.
Rest in peace.
