After a very difficult six months, my mother passed away in early November. My focus has not been so much on tatting (although I have done some ... just for the therapy!) but rather on family as well as some major reporting to government agencies for my company. I certainly hope to remedy that more in the coming months.
I would however like to give my thanks to everyone who sent personal notes on my various e-mail accounts and through Facebook. I've also received many cards ... especially a very special one from Bobbie in Montana. I am extremely grateful for the time and thought that went into all the notes; your graciousness means more than I can say.
I would also like to express my gratitude for family and especially our extended family. Under our sad circumstances, I was able to speak with cousins from across our country from Alaska to Florida. While many I had not spoken with in a number of years, it was as though those years simply melted away.
I wish you all a wonderful fall season; well, what there is left of the season. I also want to wish you a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and happy new year in 2013.
