Grief

The scrapbooking and rubber stamp community lost a wonderful woman on Monday. I had the pleasure of knowing this woman for about 10 years. Kelly and I weren't best friends or anything, but more like two people with a common bond of our love of scrapbooking. She worked at the bank where I do a lot of my banking so I knew her in that capacity too. She lost her battle with cancer after almost 4 years. She leaves behind a husband, two sons, and a daughter. The kids are in their early 20's. Much too young to be without a mother. My friend Chris and I went to the visitation last night. I am feeling very blue today. My family wants to go and get the Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas today. I just want to crawl back into bed and snuggle with the dogs and cats. We have Tom's Christmas party tonight. I guess life goes on, but my world is feeling a bit empty now. No knitting news, maybe tomorrow, or whenever I can get my groove back.

How very sad. But I know she is now in a much better place, and free from the pain of her illness.

Hey, Jaci

It's a small world. My friend Jennifer, who I hadn't seen for about 10 years, was very, very good friends with Kelly. She came by the shop on Saturday after the funeral. It was an odd day for Jennifer, saying "goodbye" to one friend and saying "hello, again" to another. We did get her started knitting again, and then she was off for home.
