Today ...

Heavy is my heart today, this evening I will attend a memorial service for my oldest daughters childhood friend, she was thirty eight years old.

Her family lived four houses down from us, the sidewalk was well traveled by both my daughter and her friend from the day we moved in until my daughter went off to college.  When my daughter was married her friend was by her side as a bridesmaid. 

Memories are a gift, they have the ability to help us grow to bond us together and to encourage us in difficult times.  

During this difficult time, I am so grateful that my heart is filled with beautiful memories of this sweet girl. 

My love, friendship, and prayers, go out to her family. RIP Lori Ann.


  1. Sending you a gentle hug and caring thoughts to her family.

  2. I will be thinking of you and your family.

  3. So sad, so young. Wishing you strength and peace...

  4. So sorry for the loss of this young woman. Hugs to you Paulette. May your happy memories of Lori Ann bring a smile to you and help your heavy heart to heal.

  5. Oh I am so sorry, and how sad for your daughter. You, and her family are in my prayers.
