R.I.P. to my Corvette Babe

I met my fiancee in 2002, and a few weeks later, we were sitting in the '82, having an ice-cream cone, with her door open, and her legs stretched
I took a few pictures of this, which she thought was funny


two weeks later, we were trackside, watching trains, and I took a few more pictures
this time, she allowed me to include her face


over the next few years, she permitted me to photograph her with the Corvette, and in other locations

as is often the case with these forums, a few mouth-breathers made rude comments, and by 2006, she would no-longer pose

*****
she hurt her back while working in February 2010, then while being treated for that injury, she was diagnosed with Stage III-C breast cancer in August of that same year, resulting in an emergency double-mastectomy in September 2010, followed by strenuous chemo, radiation, and reconstructive surgery over the next 14 months
over December 2010 and January 2011, she allowed me to get a few pictures on weeks she was between chemo-sessions


and she walked the aisle in September 2011, when her oldest daughter was married


through last Winter, she slowly regained her strength, and a few more pictures were taken


in May 2012, she thought she had a sinus-infection / sore-throat, but in reality, cancer had returned to the lymph-nodes in her neck & chest regions, and into the bones (hips, spine, skull, etc.)
2 different chemo-concoctions were tried, along with radiation, but the disease continued to spread throughout her body, and these pictures were taken the final few days of November 2012


she passed-away last Friday, on 28 December 2012, as I held her in my arms, at age 58+

I will miss her terribly

To drive a corvette is heavenly, but to drive a ZO6 is devine.
