It's been sad here lately...

Aunt Georgie passed away last week after a year of failing health and finally being diagnosed with lung cancer. It was difficult, but short, and the hospice people were wonderful to her and the family. She was surrounded by people who loved her when she passed. I didn't get to go to the funeral and I really wish I could have. She was a very special lady. Family meant so much to her and she will be sorely missed by all. I feel guilty that I never finished Sursa for her. However, I did let her know on several occaisions that she was the person who inspired me to learn to knit (among other things). I am going to finish Sursa next week and send it up when my husband heads up north. (He's going on business, but is making time to hook up with some of the cousins.) I think her daughter will appreciate it. Not much else is going on. Despite everything, it's been very busy. I have a zillion pics up on the sister site, but nothing's been integrated into a post yet. Now that they are at least available on-line, I can do some posting at lunch from the office. Take care, and hug someone you love today.

I'm sorry for your loss. I bet her daughter would like Sursa instead, and it'll have special meaning for her too.

I know this kind of sadness. Consider yourself hugged.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Consider this my hug to you until I see you again. I hope you can make it to knit night this week. Take care of yourself and BTW - Lance's article was top notch! He explained everything in a very non-combative way that I think is really approachable for knitters and just what we needed.
