I am so saddened to hear of your passing. You fought so long and hard and I know that you are at rest now. We spent so many hours talking over the past year, I feel like I know your entire family. Emma, she was so proud of you and when she talked about you her eyes lit up. Henric, she was so happy about your visit home from Sweden recently. Lets not forget about that sweet boy, Grant...the best dog ever! He made most of her days tolerable just being by her side, even when she couldn't take him for walks anymore. We talked about life, kids, and dogs every week while I worked on your arm. So many funny things kids do growing up and all the quirky things our pets do made us laugh and forget about the sadness even if just for a little while. You taught me about Sweden and so many of the customs. You always had a smile on your face even on your roughest days.
I so wanted to tell you goodbye and just thank you for the ways that you enriched my life, You are a sweet soul and I will miss you.

I never met Mia face to face, but learned of her devotion to her family and of her firm tenacity in fighting her illness for so long through my talks with Roland. I hurt for your family and offer my heartfelt condolences. You are in my prayers!

Mia and I were friends from Facebook.
She found me and contacted me and after that moment we were instant friends.
We are both from Sweden, and we also shared our illnesses, when life got difficult to handle.
She had the warmest and kindest soul, pure love.
She would write me when she needed a boost, when things seemed unbearable and we would joke and laugh until she felt better.
One time, she was feeling really low, she stated that she had lost all her hair and that she felt fat and miserable.
I called her "The Hairless First Mother" which in swedish is "Den Harlosa Urmodern" and she laughed so hard and so long, i almost got worried. From that moment, it was her moniker in our chats. She loved it and felt that she got a kick of empowerment from it.
I am going to miss her deeply, but feel that she will still be around and I will continue talking with her.
To her family: first of all, my deepest condolences. There are no right words to say in this moment, just know how much she adored you all. She was always grateful for having you.
My thoughts are with you.
If there is ever anything I could help you with, or if you just would like to talk, please do not hesitate to call or write, she would expect it from me, because that's what our friendship was founded on.
Thank you for sharing her with us.
She was a gift.
So now, my darling Hairless First Mother, I will say goodbye for now. When you are ready, I know that i will feel you all around me again.
Thank you Mia, and thank you Mia's family.
Love and Light. Marika

Mia, I just heard about your passing. I’m so thankful to have gotten to meet you through home health. A mutual friend once said you were “the sweetest soul.” I thought that described you perfectly. You worked so hard during PT sessions despite how you were feeling and the pain you were having. I won’t forget our walks with Grant and Riggs. I know you are happy and healthy again. Love, Lori

I met you through a mutual friend and was asked to keep your sweet dog Grant when you went went away and from the first meeting with you I felt a connection and came to love you. Mia you were such a sweet loving person who fought hard to beat cancer but God took you home. When I look upon heaven I will remember you and the special person you were knowing now you are pain free and strong once more. RIP Mia, love you
My thoughts and prayers for your family and friends.
