I found this sampler here and it perfectly expresses my feelings. Today is a cloudy, very rainy day in Arizona and it matches my sad mood at finding out about the death of a very dear friend. A friend who will be missed more than she would ever have believed possible. A wonderful mother, wife and stitcher and I'm proud I could call her my friend. She was genteel, kind, a little mischevious but had a very gentle spirit and calm aura. She was a pleasure to be with and I don't have a single bad memory of her. She was so special and was taken too soon but I like to believe that when someone we love dies that there is an angel in heaven looking out for us. I'll close with a poem I recently used in a memorial sampler I designed. I hope all who loved her will be comforted and find peace.

When on my day the evening shadows fall,
I will go down to where a quiet river flows
Into a sea from whence no man returns
And there embark for lands where
Life immortal grows.
