Please Remember Lynda in your Prayers

Just this morning I learned that my friend Lynda, our book group leader at the library died of cancer this past week. This was stunning news to all of us; we are so very sad. Please remember Lynda and her family in your prayers on this beautiful Sunday.

Lynda loved life and adventure. When we were reading Gifts from the Sea a few years ago, Lynda and her husband traveled to Florida where she went shell seeking and proudly displayed her finds for us during discussion. While we were leaving, she asked if anyone wanted the shells to keep. Yes! And I have them still. A remembrance of good times shared.


  1. What a sweet tribute...I hate cancer!

    I've not read the book, but I love to collect shells and mermaid tears while at the shore!

  2. ahhhh...I will remember her and her family in my prayers...that goodness for memories and special times.

  15. I lost a dear friend from my bible study group to cancer in May and it is so painful. Too young, too soon, so much laughter and sharing still to come. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with Lynda's family.

  16. Hello darling,
    I am back and have missed you terribly!! I have a post on my blog that explains my lengthy absence but enough of that, I just wanted to stop by and see how you are doing and to wish you a sunny day. I am now off to read the posts that I have missed and to look around your lovely blog.
    Love & Hugs
