FAREWELL TO A SPECIAL FRIEND




Today I have to say farewell to a very special friend.  Those of you who follow my blog know that I belong to a group of ladies who meet each year in June.  Last Thursday, the "mother" of our group died and today we have to say our final good-bye to her.    I am so glad that six of our group will be attending the funeral together to honor our love for her.  She was a truly wonderful lady who had a wonderful sense of humor and a really big heart.  Our group shared many good times together - not just making cards, but sharing meals, feelings, prayers and most of all laughter. 


This picture is from last year's lunch we shared at Biaggi's before all of us parted ways to head to our own homes.


God was good to us by blessing us with a day when weather didn't prohibit our special plans.  Six of us were able to visit our friend on January 28.  Even though we knew it would be the last time we saw her, it wasn't all sadness.   We enjoyed visiting, laughing and had a really special lunch together.  She leaves us with an emptiness in our group and will be missed!!!
