I've been so fortunate in my life to have had very few experiences with mortality.  Other than a couple of ex-boyfriends and a dozen or so beloved pets, I haven't lost anyone near and dear to me.  The last few months, however, have made me very conscious of the circle of life.  This week, I learned that this world lost an amazing, unbelievably generous, creative, talented, spirited woman who I was fortunate enough to call my friend.  As I try to come to terms with the loss of such a young vibrant woman, I would like to show you some of the work that I had the joy of framing for her and she had the joy of stitching.  Patricia Boggs, I love your guts.

I'm so sorry you have lost a good friend. it's always hard when a close friend or a family member passes. I pray she remains close to you in your heart. I can see that she had a lot of joy through the very happy pieces she stitched and that you finished. May God draw you close to Him as you go through these days ahead. Claudia B.
