We shared a love of sewing. We shared a love of smocking. We shared a love of cross-stitch. We shared a love of Bernina sewing machines. We shared a love of children. We shared a love of smiling and laughing. We shared a love of the Orthodox Church.
She wasn't my first introduction to the Orthodox Church but she did clue me in to a lot of things I did not know about the church. I seriously considered asking her to be my godmother when our family decided to convert to Orthodoxy. She lived out of town so I asked someone local. I know it was the best decision but I say that to let those reading know how close I felt to her.
I don't ask for sympathy. I only ask for prayers on her behalf... "Lord, may her memory be eternal!"
In love and recovery,
