A Rose for Rose


Last Thursday a very dear relative passed away. She was my aunt and God Mother and someone with whom I was very close to and I loved very much. Her name was Rose and I can't imagine a more fitting name for such a beautiful person.


I spent the past few days back home in upstate NY attending services and visiting with relatives. My heart is very heavy right now and I've been crying for days. I will be taking a brief break from blogging as I don't have much energy to write.


In the meantime, please know that my blogging friends are always in my thoughts.

Hi Jackie -
Mom sent me your blog so I can follow your life. That was a lovely tribute to Aunt "Blondie" (sorry - I have known her so long by that knickname - I just feel comfortable with it). It was good to see you (although briefly). With our large family and such a short period of time it's a wonder you got around to everyone. I'm glad you and Andy got down and you looked happy - life is treating you well. Think of you often and love you.

Bless you. It's a lovely rose and truly a tribute to your aunt. I too had one particular aunt that is no longer with us--but she was a very inspiring gardener and encouraged me in countless ways. It's been many years but I miss her still.
