Sad News to Share

On Tues July 26 my sweet hubby Ken passed away. He had decided the week before that he had had enough of kidney dialysis and quit going. He spent his last week as an inpatient at Hospice. His time there was such a blessing to us, we could just be his family and not worry about his medical or physical care. We spent many hours talking , laughing and sharing with him before he passed. He had a lovely Memorial Service that our daughters organized with out two oldest grandchildren speaking and our SIL also. It has been a sad time for our family and I am struggling to get used to a new life without him. I now have my mother living with me so I am not alone. She has ovarian cancer so I am caring for her.

The past couple days I have gotten out different crafting things and worked on them. I completed a brown velvet pillow with a huge rose on it for my mom's bed, she had seen one like it in an ad so I went to the stash and found fabric and made her one. I am also working on some felt trees that were the midweek muse at Joggles this week. I will share pictures when I get one done. I am embellishing the second one now.



  1. Karen I am so so sorry. Though it's good you had time to talk and come to terms, it's still a hard road. I will keep you and your mother in my prayers.

  2. My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your husband. May the love you shared sustain you in the difficult days ahead. Blessings.

  3. Karen,
