Hope you are well... we miss you...

This is such a comforting comment to receive at this time.....my dear sister and friend died just before 1 am - Saturday - April 12th. She had been ill for some months and suffered greatly in the past few weeks - still one always hopes and prays - not yet - not yet! I sat with her for some hours on Friday. In the early afternoon she was still able to communicate with me but by evening she had passed beyond words or even awareness. Her children stayed with her until the end and today she was put to rest beside her husband in the small town where we (my five siblings and I) were born and raised. I have not had the heart to design or do any scrapbooking during these days of mourning but since scrapbooking allows me to escape from the realities of life, I think it will not be long before I return to creating my little designs.

It's lovely to be missed ...
