She Lived Each Day...

The only picture I have of Bev - this one shows her concentration to the minutest detail.  It's how I remember her walking around the barn matching the colors - creating her "visions" as she called her little vignettes.  (She'd probably hate this picture but I love it!)
Bev was a quiet person filled with dignity and creativity.  She worked with us at Farmgirls diligently, loving each minute she spent in the barn.  We had to remind  her to go home but she always stretched the time limit we gave her.   One day she said to me, "Okay, Mother!" in her soft manner and laughed.  She gave and got lots of hugs.  I last saw her a week ago today - she was in so much pain but still hoped to fly to the UK but only if she felt better.  It was not to be.

Bev lost her battle with cancer today.  The news hit us hard...she worked with us to set up the sale only a week and a half ago.  How can it be that she is gone so quickly?  Her hope was to fly to London to see her new grandbaby last Tuesday but pain sent her to the hospital.  And then life support and now she is on her way to a better place without pain and no more chemo.  Her body and soul fought until it could fight no more.

We already miss you, Bev.  You taught us many things about living and decorating and patience and determination and friendship.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and friends.

Take care,



  1. Bonnie,
    I found this a deeply touching way to remember your dear friend. I'm sorry that she left this life before seeing her new grandbaby. It was obvious that she had a great friend in you, and knowing you, someone whom she could count on for support. I hope you celebrate the friendship that the two of you surely had as you mourn her loss.

  2. Dear Bonnie:
    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. What a nice tribute to her, this posting. My prayers are with you!

    Hope you and your hubby are doing well--I know I've been MIA for the last several months-lots of personal stuff going on. All good, nothing bad to report. It's good to be back though!

    Take care.
