Heaven has gained its strongest angel today. My mother, Tiffani Loughnane, fought the hardest battles. No one in this world could have fought the way she did. This was her third time with cancer. I don’t think there’s anyone who could’ve dealt with it more than once. But she did. Every single day she fought. And she did it with a smile on her face. Maybe you could tell on the outside. But in the inside nothing changed. She was always the kind hearted person she was. She was so selfless. Always put everyone before herself. Me and my sister were her whole world. She fought these battles for us. She was at every single game I had. Every baseball game. Every basketball game. Every event. Same thing goes for my sister. Every dance recital. Every one of her events. She never missed them. She put us especially first always. She raised us to be the best people we can. Everything I do will be for her. I will make sure to make her proud. I know she’s up there watching over. Everyone she loved. She was an amazing daughter, amazing sister, amazing friend, amazing aunt and most important not just an amazing mom, but the best in this world. Everyone had her in their prayers more than ever these last couple days. You fought a long hard battle. Cancer didn’t win. She still won. She just may not be here to celebrate that victory. I love you mom. More than anything in this world. Everything I do will be for you. I promise to make you proud. You will never be forgotten. 4/21/22 (by Jack Loughnane)
