I always knew I would look back at the times I had cried, and laugh.  
But I never knew that I'd look back at the times I had laughed, and cry.

Andrew's third birthday party:

I remember a time...

...when celebrations with this family...

...were filled with unadulterated joy.  

Now each one is tempered with...

...the memory of our loss.  

We miss you, Susan.


  1. I do not know who this family is, or is to you, but blessings to all of you as you grieve, and heal.

    1. Thanks, Gwen. We met Susan over 10 years ago and had an instant connection. We introduced her to Matt and they fell in love. I sewed her wedding dress and we stood up with them at their wedding. Last year, just one week before their 4th wedding anniversary, and at the age of 32, she had a stroke and passed away - leaving her husband and 2 year old son and many, many people who loved her.
