To you, our dear readers, we send our enormous thanks for your outpouring of love and support in response to our post last week about my Soul Sister, a treasured friend to both Kip and me, who was in the last days of her life. On September 1st, this dear Soul Mate, Elizabeth Alling Sewall, departed these earthly bounds, blazing a trail ahead of us, as she always has. Our hearts are sad for the loss of her physical presence, but we feel her spirit strongly still and know that she is dancing and twirling her way into lightness. Perhaps now more than ever, it is an appropriate time to remember a beautiful message she helped us see clearly: Why Miss the Moment?, a story posted at Lucy’s Studio-Lu blog.
So today, we raise our glasses to our dear friend, to passages and passing, and to all of you, who have offered your thoughts, prayers and support and eased our way through this time. And yes, we are toasting with Elizabeth’s favorite wine, the Gary Farrell Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
