    Christine Langford, her husband Craig and daughters Mikala Gunderson, 17, and fi ve-year-old Mckenzi pose for a group photo. The family live at Meridian Beach on the shores of Gull Lake and are enjoying a lovely fall walk in the nearby country.

    It happened in the month of June when the air was fragrant and warm with the promise of summer that she received the fi nal diagnoses.

    Langford, a lovely dark haired 38-year-old moth-er-of-two girls, who lives at Meridian Beach on the shores of Gull Lake, recalled those fi rst days after the di-agnosis as being extremely diffi cult.
