And so it goes for all of us: The calendar keeps moving forward, regardless of the events and battles that go on in every ones life. We can only withdraw for a time, trying to figure out how we are going to deal with things. Then we have to step back into the light, out of the dark corner we found comfort in. And figure out how to deal with life and all the events that make life unique for each one of us, friends and family alike.
Today the world lost a beautiful Spirit. After a short, devastating illness she slipped away. Her friends and family will feel her loss for a long time, cherishing Memories of a remarkable woman.
People were drawn to her soft spoken demeanor, her easy smile, but so were Animals. She seemed to truly understand them and gave them a voice in her paintings. Godspeed to you my friend, it was a privilege to know you.
