Tho' I Mourn

I also celebrate.

Yesterday we lost a dear friend. She succumbed to her battle with cancer. We will miss her greatly. Such a vibrant, genuine, beautiful woman with a wicked sense of humor. She touched a community deeply. It will be so strange not to see her smiling face, always ready with a hug for you. While I am sad, I am also so blessed to have known her and want to celebrate her wonderful life. Shirley, you were loved and we thank you for your lovely spark.

I'm sorry to read about your friend.

What a beautiful picture to celebrate her life. Perhaps you could plant a new plant in memory of her, so every time you look at it, you will have that connection.
