Rest with the angels

My friend and CML transplant buddy, Montreal, who sat with me in clinic, messaged late at night to check in, laughed with me when I fell on my ass (and helped me back up) and reached out to so many in the Young Adult community at MDA, went home to heaven this morning.

I....there isn't much that I can write here that can explain how heart broken I am for him and his family and loved ones.

He was a special young man and I am grateful, to say the least, for the moments I was blessed to share with him.  He is whole now. Healthy and happy. A spiritual young man who is no doubt safe in the Kingdom of Heaven.  He was not well the last time P and I saw him in Houston, I pray that he is comfortable now.

Thank you, Montreal. You were a good friend and a strong fighter. You reached out to so many and were well loved. Rest with the angels, friend.

This just never gets easier.


  1. sending love, Laura. My heart breaks with yours.

  2. I'm sorry for the loss of Montreal and sending love to his family and to you.

  3. All I can say is that I am so sorry. My prayers are with you and his family. I hope he now is at peace forever. Love you, Nan
