A Tough Anniversary

Today is the first anniversary of a terrible day in my family’s life.

Last year on April 12, 2017 my 13 year old great niece took her own life with a self inflected gunshot. 

She was an excellent soccer player, well on her way to the Junior Olympics and quite an artist. She was my soul child, and had to “shop” my fabric stash everytime she visited. She always went home with some treasure be it fabric, lace or buttons. She used these treasures in her creations.

We will never know for sure why, but we know that we love and miss her.

The world is a sadder place without her.

  1. I’m so sorry. The 10th anniversary of our teen son’s unexpected death (by suicide) was this past Sunday. The grief can be overwhelming at times…and then we can breathe again for a little while. Thinking of you….

Leave me a note about your feelings...
