1926-2012

Gentle Friends I will be away from the Blog for the next couple of weeks - as my mother who had been sick over the last week  -  went from stable to downhill very fast over night and she passed away this morning. 

 I will be in Florida dealing with what needs to be dealt with. 
 Here's a great snap from Christmas 2 years ago....

.... on the back of a Harley with my BIL - always up for a new adventure!!

Take care,
edgar

~Narita said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, I know the feeling, mine passed in July :(

I'm so very sorry. I LOVE the picture with the 2 of you on the bike. My mom always wanted to ride a Harley. But she was too afraid, really. She loved to stitch though and left me so many goodies. I shall most likely never need to buy another anything ever again. lol

I read a book called "Journey of the Soul: Case Studies of Lives Between Lives." It helped me immensely.

Look for her--she'll be there when you all of a sudden think of her. She'll be there in your dreams trying to say hello. She'll be there when the phone rings and there's no one there.
