Just a Favor for Friday

Hello friends ~

While I was in California last week I had access to the internet via my phone. I was able to glimpse at Google Reader, and I noticed that several of you included notes about my mom in posts on your blogs. I wasn't able to comment at the time, and I vowed to go back and have a look later.

Today I'm asking a little favor. If you mentioned my mom in a blog post, even just a sentence or two, could you please leave a link to your post in the comment section here? {Or you can email me: paperturtle[at]cox[dot]net.} I want to go back and read your words, and I also want to gather a list of links to share with my step-dad {Rod}, my Aunt Sharon, and a couple of my mom's close friends.

While I haven't been able to respond to all of the lovely comments and emails, please know that your kind words have helped to lift and carry me through these past few weeks. You are all just simply wonderful!

With love and gratitude,
~ Deb

Hi Deb :) I tried to do a post for you and your Mom but I just couldn't find the words; it was lovely to see so many others saying what I wanted to say though. You know how much we're all thinking of you xx

Hello Deb- I sat down twice and tried but couldn't find the right words either- it was heartwarming to read the wonderful words from others saying what I wanted to say too. Lots of love Denise x

I couldn't find the words either, so I posted this photo for you Deb.

hey sweetie, what a wonderful outpouring of love for Marti and for you. I did not do a post, I haven't had total focus on the blog recently but mentioned her passing on my BEglorious fb page with one of the pics from my Teal Toes blog post.

I have to admit, I didn't quite know all of this was going on because I'm a bit behind in the blogging department, especially when it comes to reading blogs. But I have definitely been thinking about your sweet family.

Am glad that you are feeling such support from everyone, Deb - I haven't mentioned your Mum in a particular post, but rest assured I continue to think of you all...

So glad you have found everyone's words supportive and helpful.
I saw one or two posts with mentions of you and Marti... Glad they were helpful to you. Wish I was able to think of the right words to say too, but some others have said it all for me.

Just know that you and your family have been - and still are - in my thoughts.
You lost Marti on the 11th anniversary of my dad's death. I will remember her - and all of you - every 9th October, because of that, as well as for yourselves. I don't know if you like the idea of this, but it will kind of make a warm place for you all in my heart, just by association. Obviously God likes to have the Very Special People come to Heaven on October 9th!
Thinking of you and God Bless you & your family.
