I could not think of the right words to say
When I got the sad news today

My sister lost her best friend
She stayed by her side until the very end

I told her how sorry I was for her loss
And I love you so very much

I believe there is a reason for all things
God must have needed another angel and He gave her wings

She was a little choked up and her tears made it hard to see
But I remember my sister saying these words so softly to me

I prayed for you to make it through
I don’t know what I would have done if it had been you

Thank God you were one of the lucky ones
You were so very strong, you powered on

I have learned that if God brings you to it
He will bring you through it

I don’t yet know what my purpose is
But whatever it is I will fight for it

The love of my sister is still so strong
And I will always remember those words that gave me the strength to continue on

A Peek into the Boutique

Hi! My name is Carla Baudrons, I’m one of the newbies here at CRC, and one of the many things I get to do is serve folks in our boutique. The Emily Virkler Boutique is named for a former client of ours who sadly passed from brain cancer in 2017. Because of her family’s generous funding and your continued support, we’re able to provide people experiencing cancer with free items such as wigs, hats and scarves of all kinds, mastectomy products like surgical bras, breast prostheses, and mastectomy bras, and more.
