Joan

My daughter's grandmother, Joan, died last night peacefully at home with her family close by. She had been fighting a vicious battle with cancer for the passed three years.

Candace and I visited with her just last month. During that same visit, she decided to forgo any further chemo, because it was extremely harsh AND it wasn't producing very good results.

I had hoped that she would have had a little better quality of life for at least a few more months.

She was a great woman, mother, grandmother. Everyone is going to miss her.

Noone is going to feel her absence more than Jim, her husband, will. I feel such sadness for him. They've known each other ALL their lives. Married over 53 years, I think. I cannot imagine the strength it will take for him to pick himself up again each morning and carry on without her there.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
