In my heart forever

This is a page I did while on a convention, it was designed and taught by Candice Greenway.  These are the photos taken of me and Claire the week-end of our 20th School reunion in 2010.  It will stay up in my studio for ever as a reminder of her and how fragile life is.

Claire died last night from what I understand to be from the Chemo she was having for breast cancer which damaged her liver.

It was so sudden.

She fought so hard.

She was going to come visit and stay with me in January...

She never got to see the new "skinny me" in person  Selfish I know, but I can't help feeling this way.

Life is short

Hi Belinda,

So sorry for your loss. Chemo is just as devastating as the disease it treats.

You have a special angel now.

Hugs,
Kay

Ah I am sorry Bella, Life is fragile and that is why we should always tell people how much they mean to us. Don't wait for tomorrow because it may not come. Sending you big hugs and I am so glad that you have used this layout as a tribute to her. Big hugs xox

I am finally here to say sorry for the loss of your friend. It hurts I know - I lost one of mine in a similar way 3 years ago.
I sent you a hug on your phone last week and I am sending one now to you.
Lovely layout.
