Today is bitter-sweet. Although I know my friend, Tami, is in Heaven because she placed her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, it's still the day we say good-bye. I'm attending Tami's funeral this afternoon. She lost her battle with liver cancer, which took her at the age of 50. She leaves behind so many people who loved her including her husband, Todd, her beautiful 12-year-old daughter, Desiree, and her autistic son, the handsome John, who is 9. She will be sadly missed.
I made this book for her sweet Mom, Kay. I thought that Kay could fill it with precious childhood memories of Tami, and tuck some special things inside the pockets of the glassine bags I used. I wish I could comfort her more. How do you say good-bye to your own daughter? I cannot imagine. I can only thank God every day for my health, and the health of my children.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I must get a shower now and get ready to go.
