This is just so sad. So unfair. I always wonder why bad things happen to good people. My thoughts and prayers are with Zamora's family as they deal with the loss of Zamora.

Words fail. My heart goes out to Zamora's family. I will keep Zamora in my daily prayers. May God give her family the strength to deal with such a loss. Know that our thoughts are with you.

A Poem that was given to me when we lost a family member to cancer:
REMEMBER ME
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet, turning, stay.
Remember me when no more, day by day,
You tell me of our future that you planned.
Only remember me, you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for awhile
And afterwards remember, do not grieve;
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Then that you should remember and be sad.

Christina Rossetti
