You knew that we were blog friends, but did you know that you were my best blog friend? I am going to miss you here in Blogland. I loved all of the posts you created. They were filled with peaceful moments, giving us a little magic with your words, poetry, and photos. You took us to another place as we opened up your page, only to find many enchanting stories and pictures.
You are smart and clever and wise and creative and kind and just simply wonderful.
And all those e-mails that you sent me through the years! I loved every one of them. I enjoyed hearing stories from your childhood and your dear Mom and Dad while growing up in California. I smiled at all the different font colors you used. Pink was my favorite. You sent me this message one day, do you remember?
I loved when you showed us pictures of your home. You always inspired me to work on my own homes, giving them that extra special touch. Your house was a labor of love - you worked so hard in your garden for many years, making your home look like a storybook cottage.
Your photos are equisite, and thank you for sending me this picture. I'll be sure to frame it and hang it up in my home someday.
I know how you want to work on other projects right now in your life, and I look forward to hearing about them all. Please don't forget your blog friends, as we will never forget you. You exude grace and love, and you have a way about you that stirs the very heart of each person you meet.
Me and the girls were always fascinated that you were a French teacher. You sent me these words one time, and now I am giving them to you. Yes, I keep very special things.
Bonjour ma chere amie! Que notre Seigneur te benisse!
Be well, my Huckleberry friend, and know that I will be thinking about you often.
I love you,
