You all remember one of the founding members of PinStack, moderator and long-time contributor Cherri Chiodo. Cherri's daughter Lauren became ill about four years ago, with a cancer that they've been fighting ever since.....until this morning. Here's the post from Lauren's Facebook page, from Cherri:
"At 8:05am this morning my beautiful baby girl Lauren "Lola" Scott Chiodo left her physical body here on earth to start a new journey, one she told me she was so excited to begin. Words cannot explain our sadness but knowing that her spiritual soul is no longer ridden with cancer brings us solace. She is dancing with so many loved ones right now I can feel her joy. She will forever amaze me with the love she had for so many."
As with our friend Jeremy's (thbassman) passing a couple of years ago, this one hits hard, especially since Lauren was barely 16 years old. Please keep Cherri and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
I'm sure Lauren is in heaven, sitting on God's lap.
My most heartfelt sympathies to Cheri and her family who all bore the burden of carrying the child to her final resting place.
It's a task no parent should ever face.
Rest in peace Lauren.
Rest well Cheri in the knowledge that Our Saviour has now welcomed Lauren to His flock.
My prayers for all of you.
