TAKEN TOO SOON
Brendan and Lesma had only been married three months when Brendan was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Nearly a year after Brendan was diagnosed Lesma gave birth to twins, a girl and a boy. “Jacob and Abbey brought great joy at a time when there was much sadness. Brendan couldn’t spend enough time with the kids.” remembers Lesma.
Tragically Brendan died when his twins were just two and a half years old.
“That first Christmas, we went out to the cemetery. It was so hard. The kids had some balloons and wrote some notes. I wish they had more Christmases with him.”
