Every day gets a little harder, Rochelle is so weak she can not even speak. Ryan made the comment yesterday that it must be frustrating for her to sit here and listen to us talk and she can not contribute, and we all know how much Rochelle loves to talk. She has no strength to even scratch her face. We have watched her lift her arms up a few inches and we think what does she need to scratch, to stretch, a drink? So of course we try them all in hopes of keeping her comfortable. She loves when we wash her face, yesterday when we were washing her arm pits she said in relief, thats just what I need.

Rochelle and Family~

My thoughts are with you as well. I wanted to let Rochelle know that even at this time in her weakest moments she is still giving service. Her inspiration and strong drive has motivated me to be a better mother and wife which is a great service to my husband and children. Thank you for your shining example to all of us. You are truly amazing to me. I love you

This Makes me think of a quote from Pres. Monson...

"We not only teach with words; We teach also by who we are and how we live our lives"

We Love you Rochelle!

I don't know if Rochelle will ever know how much her example these past couple of years have given me the strength to endure my own trials. When I didn't feel like going to church I always thought of her and if she could have the strength, so could I! She has touched my life in a way that has truly helped me to get through. My children love you Rochelle they always say "she is the nicest person". Thank you for making them feel loved. You are in our thoughts and our prayers. Love you!
