    Deepest sympathy Lawrence, Elisabeth and Gene and all your family on Henny’s passing. She reminds us everyday what cancer cannot do. Blessings, Jo-Anne Kobylka

    What Cancer Cannot Do
    It cannot cripple Love
    It cannot shatter Hope
    It cannot corrode Faith
    It cannot destroy Peace
    It cannot kill Friendship
    It cannot suppress Memories
    It cannot silence Courage
    It cannot invade the Soul
    It cannot steal Eternal Life
    It cannot conquer the Spirit.
