In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that all donations be made to Home Hospice, 516 N. Texas, Odessa Texas 79761.
Just hearing that "C" word
Scares me half to death
My life was spinning downward
My body felt like it was out of breath
I knew that my life was going to change
You're a coward the way you attack
You make my body feel all strange
But I am here to take it back.
Cancer you're a coward
Because you attack from within
You speed up our lives faster
That it should be a sin
I have gotten my inspiration
From real family and friends
You will not get me with your intimidation
I will fight you to the bitter end
Yes cancer you may get to me
Though just mark my word
I know that one day I will be cancer free
That day will be when I walk with the Lord
So try as you may
And do as you might
I am here to say
You' re in for one hell of a fight
