You will be surely missed Barbara.

  12. Thank you all for your kind words. They have all helped in some special way.

    After the shock of the news of Barbara's death I have now come to terms with it. It is a shame as she was so young and had so much more to give. I don't know how her family is going to cope without her.

    Blogging has brought me many blessings through you as my friends. I know I have all of you for support if need be. It is a release to be able to put into words to express one's feelings, and have so many positive, uplifting responses.

    Thank you all so, so much.
