She loved sock monkeys…

Hey there. It’s been a rough week for us here. On Saturday my sister-in-law passed away after a long battle with cancer. I am trying not to focus on the sadness but remember the fun, happy optimistic woman that she was. She loved sock monkeys,  lawn gnomes, the Wizard of Oz and mostly her family and friends. She was a talented lady, she made quilts, dolls, jewelry and most importantly she made every person she met feel special.  When you get married you never know what you are getting yourself into as far as in-laws go but I was so lucky to marry in to such a loving family.  I’ll never forget her loud boisterous laugh and her sense of humor. There has been a hole left by her passing but our lives are all the better for having been in hers. Wanda, we love you and will miss you always.

  3. My sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one…(it is especially poignant to me, as a sock monkey nut!)…I pray you all continue to feel her love & presence every day and that your hearts heal quickly. She is certainly still with each and every one of you, watching over you and oozing love from within your hearts. I especially feel your pain today, having lost a beloved uncle this past week. Many blessings to you!

I’m reminded of the following from “The Mighty”– “When someone so great once was, then someone so great will always be.” She lives in your heart, your memories and your laughter.
