Hello friends... I don't normally share personal things on my blog because well... this is a blog about my cards. But recently a friend died and she died way too soon and this has hit me kinda hard. I have gone back and forth about whether or not I wanted to blog about Vicki's passing, but finally decided that I needed to do this... for me. I first learned that Vicki was very ill on January 17th. I was able to visit her on January 25th and for that I am very grateful because Vicki passed away on January 26th. Her memorial service was yesterday (Febuary 8th). I was able to attend along with some other friends. I made this card for her family... Vicki loved the color purple and so the card had to include that color in a prominent way.
Vicki was a wife, a mom, a sister, a photographer, and a business woman. She had a real gift for photography and was able to turn that gift into a successful business. She photographed hundreds of weddings (including mine and my sister's) and other special events. But more important than all of that Vicki was a Jesus girl! She loved the Lord and served him faithfully. She will be tremendously missed by everyone who knew her. A friend sent me this photo of me and Vicki at our class reunion last July.
Thank you to those of you who stop by for a look and to those of you who take the time to leave me a comment... it means a lot to me.
