I love you

The loss of a friend is like that of a limb; time may heal the anguish of the wound, but the loss cannot be repaired. .......

I just learned yesterday that a good friend of mine passed away.  I am still in shock as I am sure her family is as well.  She was one of my first blogging friends and we lovingly shared our histories and worries.  We shared our love of reading and what good books to read.  We shared our love of food especially when we got to eat out in restaurants.  She shared her love of her church with me and her church family.  She shared her love of family.

I love you Linda and will always love you.  Peace and Grace my friend.
Sandy

These times in our lives are not easy. I send you love and time to heal. We carry these friends in our hearts forever - however, somehow the human race has not quite grasped what a gift it really is to be able to remember. Holding you in my consciousness. May your grieving be a gentle journey. love and hugs, Donna

Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, Sandy. I had seen a post on FBook about Linda (Suzanne Dean), but I couldn't find any info as to who she was. It's hard to say goodbye to a friend, and I'm so glad for you that you had the opportunity to have Linda in your life, to share the things that give you joy. Sharing those with a friend, always doubles the enjoyment. God Bless. Hugs.

Sue from Oregon said...

It is amazing, these friendships we develop over our crafty hobby. They are important to us and oh so special to our hearts. They spill over into our day to day lives and complete our circle of friends. Hugs to you and to all those who were in Linda's circle.

Marilyn said...

I sometimes think our bloggy friends are more special than our in person friends as they are so loving and giving and have never met us. Losing friends always sucks, especially when they've filled such a place in your heart.
I am late to the show to hear this Sandy and my heart and prayers go out to all that Linda touched that they and you will find peace in her absence. It's wonderful to know that she had so many friends around her that loved her. Beautiful tribute to what is obviously a very beautiful and special lady.
My sincerest of hopes that you'll be okay and to send hugs,
Lisa xx
