Rest in Peace

  • Posted on February 6, 2006 at 1:21 pm

I have only just learned of a terrible loss to the stitching bloggers community. I never had the privilege of actually calling Laura “friend” as I never did anything but read her blog and leave a comment for her from time to time. And yet, it is so difficult to fathom her departure from this world.

Laura was so open and candid about herself and her feelings on her blog, it was obvious that she struggled with some serious inner demons regarding her self-esteem and self-worth. I nearly cried with her every time she wrote a sad entry about not having conceived a child… again. And so I sit here, in stunned and shocked silence, wondering once again why bad things happen to good people. I know that there is no answer, nor will there ever be an answer good enough to satisfy me.

Dear Laura, please know that you were loved, even from afar, that you were respected by so many and that you will stay with us in our hearts forever. Rest in peace.
