I am not sharing an oldie today

Dear All

Thank you for your lovely comments. I value the feedback and enjoy reading what you have to say.

I am not posting a card/project today because today is the seventh anniversary of my son's death. He was born with a heart condition and after several operations, it was decided he needed a heart transplant. Sadly, he became too ill to be considered. I wish I could find photos (they're on here somewhere!) of when he was a happy ,healthy, bonny child. He was lucky enough to do a job he loved and his ashes are with his beloved lemurs at Paradise Wildlife Park. He has a public page on Facebook where there are many moving tributes to this wonderful man. My heart bursts with pride to know how well loved he was. Sleep well son xxx

  3. So sorry for your loss Karen. Take care today, thinking of you.

  4. Hi Karen
    Hopefully there will be times today where you have smiled at remembering Gary rather than shredding a tear.
    On my down days, I always think there others that are or have been worse than me.
    Thinking of you.

    1. I've just re-read that and should explain I meant you and Gary went through worse than me. Doh!
