Tiffany Floth Romero: 

Tiffany Floth Romero was truly a remarkable person. She loved a good joke and had a smile that lit up an entire room. She deeply loved her family and friends. Tiffany taught us how to live with the greatest adversity. She never shed a tear nor asked “why me?" She spent the last chapter of her life tending to the needs of those around her.

"Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart." -Chief Tecumseh, Warrior:

The last chapter of Tiffany’s life was the very best of times and the absolute worst of times. There were surgeries, radiation, and lots of chemotherapy. There was sickness, hair loss, all sorts of medications, etc. At the same time, Tiffany was a wife an attorney, a loving daughter, sister and loyal friend. She played tennis and golf, she broke a score of 80, and shot a hole in one. Despite cancer, she was courageously living life on her own terms.

 

On August 5th, 2006, There was no more chemotherapy, no more radiation, no more surgeries, and no more suffering. With her family at her side, she opened her eyes one last time, took a deep breath and fearlessly left this world behind.
