My condolences, June Bug..

I didn’t know that Tom had died until I saw your Blog entry about him. I hope that Joan is managing as best she can. She must have been devastated to lose him.

I hadn’t seen him in our local Super-Market for quite a while. He loved to examine the vegetables very carefully before making a choice..I know he loved to cook, but from his eyes, I could see that his spirit was preparing to leave..May he rest in very deserved peace.

You appear to be on your own very creative voyage. That is what our inner lives need to grow. Carry on!!

Good to hear from you, Artemesia, and thanks for the condolences and the picture of Uncle Tom that you have just painted with your words. I think Uncle Tom's death was very hard on both Aunt Joan and my cousin Anna, but they really, really took good care of him til the very end.

And thanks for the encouragement! :)
