Vaarwel lieve Els.

Yesterday afternoon, a friend and lovely woman passed out of a long illness and into something better.  She was an artist, mother, wife, and friend to many, and a beautiful soul.  We will miss her mightily.

  1. I'm sorry you've lost a friend, Susan, but it is hard to begrudge them an end to their suffering.

  6. I have not come to that point yet and I'm not sure how close my husband is but just hearing you say it that way,makes me less afraid for when my husbands time comes. The Dr just told us he has pancreatic cancer. I'm not sure if they will do anything for him because he has so many ailments. Thank you for a good thought of him being somewhere better and out of pain, although I am the one who will be so lonely without him.

  9. Thank you all for your kind, lovely thoughts. I will have to say that I have nothing but good memories to remind me of her, and she had many friends who loved her to pieces. We are all so happy that she was in our lives - just not long enough.
