A note of thanks.
As some of you know, my big sister, Edith, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor on
June 22, 2014. She endured a 12 hour surgery on June 22nd to remove it, and a long recovery.
Then she began a six week program of radiation treatments and chemotherapy.
During this time, a fellow blogger friend, Donna Ellis posted Edith's plight and requested
that cards be sent on a special part of her blog.
Cards poured in, and each day she enjoyed the lovely homemade cards.
My sister was a former rubber stamper, so she knew the time and love each
card held, and was so overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and love of complete
strangers, as were all of us.
My sister passed away, September 13th, surrounded by her entire family,
only 84 days after the initial diagnosis. Sadly the treatments made her
fragile and she got pneumonia and could not fight it.
Since her death, more cards have arrived expressing sympathy and love.
I want to also express my love and appreciation for my House Mouse Design Team
family who have supported me throughout my sister's illness and death and also sent
wonderful cards, prayers, and supported me when I needed it the most.
Cards that arrived since her passing.
Thanks too, for everyone who commented and mentioned that they were
thinking of our family and expressed prayers for my sister.
I could not have imagined when I began this blog in 2008, that
I would make so many new friends and that we would all be so
invested in each others everyday lives.
I am so thankful for each one of you.
