Sad News

Early Saturday morning we received a phone call from a dear friend my husband and I have known since we were teenagers. He called to tell us his wife (one of my closest friends when I was growing up) had died.

 I was shocked.
They live in a different state than we do, so we haven't kept in touch as much as we'd like, but last fall when I was in Idaho doing some book signings we were able to go to dinner with them. We talked as though we were young kids again, remembering the good times we'd had. She was so excited about my books being published, which was very touching.

Needless to say, we left as soon as we could to go to Idaho and attend her viewing and funeral. One of the songs sang at her service was Scatter Sunshine. Not the usual funeral song, but it was so very fitting for my friend. She was a ray of sunshine to everyone. 

Linda, this beautiful flower that makes me think of sunshine, is for you!


  1. I am so sorry for your loss Kathi. It's so hard losing a life long friend. My thoughts are with you. Take care.

    I bet Linda would love the pic.

  2. So sorry for your loss. It's good that you had a chance to get together and remember the past. My thoughts and prayers are with you and her family.

  3. Jemi,
    You're very thoughtful. Thank you. I think she'd like it, too.

  4. Mason,
    Thank you for your prayers. I know her family will appreciate the added prayers as well. My heart goes out to her husband. He's a very kind and loving man and will miss her dearly.

  5. I'm sorry about your friend, Kathi. I'm glad you two were able to get together and have such a good time so recently.

  6. Thanks, MT.
    I'm so glad my friend and I had that time together. I will always cherish it.
