My lovely blogland friends may I say how touched and humbled I have been over the past couple of weeks by the many prayers, kind words and good wishes you have sent my way  during our family's sad loss.   It has meant such a great deal to know you were there for me.

A great big thank you to you all AND to Bev and Marie for keeping you updated on my behalf.



  1. Hi Anne,
    I am so sorry to read about your mum.
    Sorry I didn´t read it before.
    That is the sadest start for a new year.
    I wish you strength and that the new year will become good for you, even after that start.

  2. Dear Ann....Sincere sympathy to you and your family. The death of your mom is so sad....I know how difficult it is and when it is a parent it is indeed a devastation to all. Prayers are with you at this time and know that you are in our thoughts. I would have sent a note earlier but did not know your private e-mail and hoped I would get the opportunity that your note today has presented. Hig hugs, Gayle.

  3. Hi Ann, It is good to hear from you. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you and your family still and we will continue to be there.

    (it is hard to express exactly what you think/feel in a strange tongue. So forgive me if I sound awkward)

  4. Our caring thoughts are with you Ann.
    May fond memories of your mum bring you comfort, even as you face these dark days.
    We ALL are there for you Ann.

  6. Dear Ann, I hope you are feeling a little better. Only time will help a bit. You've been in everybody's thoughts and hearts.
    Bless you, xx

  7. May loving thoughts and memories of your Mother comfort you, Ann. Please know that you're in my thoughts, heart and prayers.
    Blessings and love, Terri xoxox

  8. Much sympathy to you Ann. Know that you have friends around the world thinking about you.
