The joy of new life …..

….. tempered by the passing of another.

My sister, Lucille, passed away today from cancer of the lung and stomach. She was was the oldest of us 7 girls, 18 years my senior ….

 


Lucille, Winnie, Tara, Vivian, Marty, Sally and Loraine with me in the back peeking over the top of Vivian’s head.

 

 

Sally, Rosie, Lucy,  Winnie, Rainy, and Viv

 

I will miss you Lucy!

 

Ladies, I will be absent for a little while. Life has caught up with me and snagged me while I wasn’t looking.  Best Wishes Everyone!  I’ll be back …… if not before, than in the Fall when the leaves begin to turn and calm returns to the mountain.

((hugs))  Rosie

    I’m peeking in during a blogging break and had to stop to tell you how very sorry I am that you lost your sister. I will pray for you and her family as you walk through these difficult days ahead.

    Take good care of yourself during your break. Enjoy your precious new grandbaby. I will miss you but will look forward to your return. When you are ready.

  11. Rosie, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear sister. I know that you will treasure all your memories of your many years together.

    I am thinking about your words – the joy of new life tempered by the passing of another. Back in 1985 I had a sweet young cousin who was just approaching her 21st birthday. She was killed in an automobile accident by a wreckless driver. As we were just arriving to the area where her family lives, we passed a mailbox tied with beautiful pink balloons. I don’t know why exactly, but it gave me comfort. Life is truly a cycle. God lends us his precious creations to love while we have them here with us.

    You are in my prayers.

  12. Rosie,
    I am so sorry. I will be praying for you and your family.
    Take care.
    Hugs and love,
    Donna
