About three weeks ago, Kristen Eberhard had prepared her goodbyes.
The Woodstock, N.Y., resident, 48, packed her bags and headed west to Boulder, Colo., to spend time with her terminally ill cousin Lisa Dumaw, 47, during what was presumed to be her final days.
Dumaw, a retired attorney, was hospice-bound, following a five-year battle with ovarian cancer. At 90 lbs., she was no longer able to eat. Even though she was sick, Dumaw's time with Eberhard was meaningful and enjoyable.
"We talked about everything," Eberhard tells PEOPLE. "We laughed about the past, we cried, we talked about death, frustration, regrets. It was pretty intense. And at one point, I asked her if she and her partner had ever thought about getting married."

Demi Lovato isn't ready to jump back into an acting career.
The X Factor judge says it's difficult being on camera since her treatment for anorexia and bulimia. In fact, while millions watch her on TV each week, she doesn't watch herself.
"It is still hard being in front of the camera when you have suffered from eating disorders, and I still don't watch my episodes. It is hard," Lovato, 21, told reporters at Thursday's show.
"I think ultimately my main thing is singing," she said. "Maybe movies once in a while, if the right role comes along."

"Thank God I didn't hurt myself and stopped," she says.
