Today on a more personal note

This is a place to learn and share tips on improving the craft of writing and blogging.

However, today, I’d like to take a minute to apologize and share why I’ve been remiss in replying to your comments in a timelier manner.

I’ve been back East with family, saying goodbye to a wonderful courageous woman. My beautiful strong niece lost a very long battle with breast cancer last week. 

It was wonderful to see my big family and large number of friends, but I would have gladly put off this reunion for several more years to avoid this sad occasion.

Lori fought the great fight for over nine years with grace and courage. She never bowed to the pain or demands cancer inflicted on her body and mind. She lived her life on her terms and we all watched in awe.

Today our hearts are heavy with her loss, but we are also filled with joy for having known her. Because Lori brought laughter into each room she entered.

She left the world a better place because she spent forty-four years in our midst. 

For Lori…

We will miss you but you will never be forgotten.

Thank you for your indulgence as I deviated from my usual subject to honor a wonderful woman.
