Farewell

fare well
Another Beloved Lady has passed from my life...
What grace, bravery and strength she had to the very end.
She taught me so much about hospitality and being genuine. About doing the right thing. Saying the nice thing. Holding a hug for a moment longer than expected. The value of gathering love and beauty around even {especially} at the darkest times. Being present when each movement brings exhaustion. About true class and style. Being patient while others grumble...
Dear Friend...You will be remembered, honoured and missed always...

My condolences Andrea...
This season is a bittersweet one for me as well. It is good and healthy to focus on what is to be learned by the time shared with those who enter and then exit our lives. I need to keep that steadfast in my mind.

Lovely photo and such beautiful words....as always :)

Oh Andrea,
I'm so sorry to hear this. You have had quite a lot happening in your life this year, and I hope for all the sad parts that you will be repaid with a greater amount of joy down the road. *Hugs*

Thank you so much everyone...
It seems that 2010 has handed me more troubles than I ever could have imagined...And also so much to learn. I've never really been touched by death until this year...Watching and being with those closest to the people who have passed has taught me so, so much...
I am blessed to have loved {and love} so many wonderful people. I will seek more wonderful people to love...In the past I would turn to the safety of a solitary life...No more.
Peace and Health and LOVE to You all...

Peace to you dear Andrea, with love, Rochelle

I am so sorry. There is something so horribly, horribly final about loss. May you have the comfort of many people around you and the comfort of true and beautiful things.
