Peace be with you

Today is a day of remembrance and tribute.

We received one of those dreaded calls on Wednesday. The sad news that a much beloved business client and friend of my husbands had passed away Tuesday from cancer. We had last heard in the Spring that Larry was doing well and improving, also had a phone call from his daughter in the past month, maybe two about something totally unrelated and there was no mention of her fathers condition deteriorating. So very shocking and heartbreaking. Today we will be attending his funeral and memorial service. Wishing his family comfort in memories and the love surrounding them today.

Take time today to hold your loved ones near or make that call or send that letter. Time is fleeting.


  1. A thought that should be held every day. Thank you for sharing. My condolences to you and your husband for the passing of a friend.

  2. I'm so sorry. I will keep all of you in my prayers, hugs, Nan

  3. I'm so sorry, Sally. My thoughts are with you and your husband. You are so right, it is time to make those calls and visits. You never know how long you have with friends or family. Love to you - xox Pam

  4. Good thougtht to keep in mind, not only for December but year round. My thoughts are with you adn your husband.

  5. Having been in my own personal wrestling match with the evil C, I can say it is sneaky and a most formidable foe. This time of year is an especially difficult time to lose a dear one.
    With deep sympathy,

  6. Hi Sherrie!
    I so agree - it is a reminder that I need continually, I am forever getting caught up in the small stuff that is of no import. Thank you so very much for your kind words.

  7. Hi Nan!
    Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts!

  8. Hi Pam!
    Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts for us, I so appreciate them and you.
    Absolutely and a reminder that I need daily, I get lost so easily and readily in the minutia of life.

  9. Hi Leslie!
    Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts. It is a reminder that I need all the time, I forever am distracted by the things of no consequence.

  10. Hi Maria!
    OH! I am so sorry and saddened to hear of your battle - I'm so sorry I didn't know. Sending you lots of hugs and wishes & hopes for healing and renewal. I am going to ask Pam to give you my "real" email addy. We can talk movies or thrifting or whatever. :)
    Thank you so much for your kind words and please know you are in my thoughts.
