 Yesterday our friend Leontien passed away.  I borrowed two of my favorite pics of her from her blog. Read her notifcation from her family HERE... and how many people do you know with a horse in her wedding photo....
read her story of her weddings, 3 of them to the same man HERE she was a talented, gifted lady.


and the story of her beloved horse HERE... we will miss you Leontien

I am sorry for this loss, which I am reading, across blog land.

Please take a min to visit Vee's blog,
to see her first time "Because I Can" pic. She credited me with that phrase, but I told her, it is your idea. Please tell her I sent you over.

"Auntie"

It is always sad to say a final earthly good-bye to those we love.I trust that each person who held her dear will find comfort in the God who understands.

This makes me so sad but what an amazing woman and her husband.
I went back and read her posts through teary eyes.
I hate cancer and its ravishness.
Thanks for sharing with us and I am so sorry for your loss too Sandra.

I went to her blog and read several of her last posts, but I finally stopped because it was just so awful...she was so young and wanted to live so much...her whole life ahead of her.
