For Melinda

It is with a heavy heart I write today.
I made this card this morning for my friend Melinda. She passed away Sunday January 11th.
Have you ever had a friend that was always there, always giving, always honest, always funny, always caring and ALWAYS Melinda? She used to enjoy and critique my cards although she didn't stamp much. Sometimes she was brutally honest but most of the time right. She would come to my camps just to visit and make everyone laugh with her stories......she was a hoot!! Everyone loved her.
I made her this simple and elegant card and hope she likes it.
It's very difficult to think she's gone....I'm having a very hard time accepting it. She was only 53 and would have been 54 just yesterday.
So this ones for you Melinda....Thank You for so many laughs, great memories and especially your friendship. I'll never forget you! Love ya!!!
