Most gratefully yours~

calligraphy by Bernard Maisner

I have been so touched by the emails, comments on this blog, phone calls, cards, flowers and gifts I have received from family, friends, clients both past and present.  I hope I have thanked you each personally, but if not, I want you to know how much your kindness has meant to me during this time of loss.  I think everyone close to me knew what Gigi meant to me and what a huge hole this has left in my heart.  It warms my heart, though, to think of all the wonderful people who have reached out to let me know you care.  I am so blessed to have such amazing people who are, and have been, a part of my life.  I am most grateful for you all.

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving
for my friends, the old and the new.

  1. I have just stumbled accross your blog, to read this entry of loss. My heart goes out so that I felt I must write.
    These little creatures that sit at our feet, are our shadow, I think we mourn more than any other loss.
    I had two cats, Rabbit and Marple, brother and sister for 18 and 19 years. I still miss them, sometimes think I still see them coming around the corner, will never forget them.
    Some would say they were lucky to have a person such as me. I adamantly say, I was the supremely lucky one to get to share their lives.
    From reading your post, I sense your relationship the same with your beloved Gigi. It is the worst sadness. I feel for you, and mourn with you your feelings of loss. I am so sorry for it.
