30 December 2012. Denise Would’ve Been 56 Today… I Find the Loss Still Hurts…

My friend Denise would’ve been 56 today if uterine cancer hadn’t carried her off some two years ago (3 January 2011). I find that the loss is still there… not as sharp, of course, but still there. You never forget those who stretched out a hand to you when all others turned their backs. I know how nasty people can be… and how good they can be, too. I miss her…

Вечная память

Light a candle for Denise and Jerome (her husband, who passed six months later of a broken heart) at liturgy when you go next, please. Thank you…
