May...a tribute

"Is it so small a thing
To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved,
To have thought,
To have done..."

- Matthew Arnold

Dear Dutchess
As I look at your mother's eyes I feel she had a full like in her very short 46 years.. What a beautiful women she was.. I am sure she will be traveling with you and enjoying the music.
Beautiful tribute.
Blessings dear friend

Lieve Dutchess
Ik zie ineens dat je aan je bericht iets hebt toegevoegd.
Ik werd er helemaal stil van.
Wat een mooie jonge vrouw.
Wat zal je haar missen... al heel lang niet meer iets met haar kunnen delen.....alleen maar in gedachten.....heel verdrietig...
Ik omarm je .

My sweet soul sister,

When I originally came here early in the week, I do not recall seeing this absolutely GORGEOUS picture of your maman....i am in tears here....I just saw your comment on my post. Do you know....that when YOU and Penny come, I feel that my comment page is COMPLETE. I don't know why, but whenever I compose a post, I do it with you in mind. I knew that you too lost your dear mother at an early age and that she must have been an extraordinary woman. She is stunning. She is alive my friend....she lives forever. My momma is with her chatting and saying, "Our two daughters have met in their spirits and though they may never see each other's eyes on this earth, they will know one from another when they meet US in eternity." She is truly gorgeous my friend, as I imagine and believe you are....what a beautiful world we have. MILLE BISES, Nita
