My sister passed away yesterday afternoon. She was 48 years old. I don't have the words to describe the depth of my pain and sadness, and the devastation to her husband and 18 year old son. My thanks to all of you for your prayers and kind words.

Just a quick post to tell you that I am away from blogging for awhile due to a serious illness within my family.

I am doing o.k., and my sister's funeral services were Friday. I have accepted this now surreal life without her in it, and I'm grateful for our last conversations together as they were particularly meaningful. I'll get back to regular blogging within the month, and thank you, all of you, for the warmth and support you have shown to me and my family.
