This is from Dr. Thomas Hackett.
Mitsue was my favorite patient. It is hard to believe 21 years have passed since her dual diagnosis of breast cancer and lung cancer. She was a positive person and lived each and every day. She will always be an example to me of how one's faith can beat all odds. With deepest regrets. Doc Hackett

I thought Mitsue was a real kick. She always made me laugh! Once when I emailed Billy I copied Mitsue on it. Since his nick name to some was Roid as in hemroids I ended the message with, “hey how are your roids?” Mitsue called Billy right away worried about him and interrogated him about his “problem” and offering advice.
I got the business from Billy but chuckled as I knew Mitsue was going to give him the business! Both are greatly missed.

My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one.
Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Mitsue. will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection." (Acts 24:15). I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) brings you comfort. For more comfort from the Bible visit www . jw . org.
