Rest in peace, sweet Louise

The beautiful Louise, blogger at Evil Stepmonster, lost her fight with breast cancer in August of this year. She passed away just 9 days after celebrating her gorgeous daughter's first birthday.

My heart goes out to her devastated husband and whole family.

Louise was a wonderful blogging friend, and I was lucky to know her, even just a little. I never heard her speaking voice, but I'm sure I'd recognize it anywhere.

If you are so inclined, please offer a good thought to Louise's loved ones by leaving a comment on the most recent post at her blog, written by her grieving husband. (The post has an August date, but I'm sure it just went live in the last 24 hours or so. I check my feed for her updates every day.)

There you can also see a couple of photos of the divine little creature named Kayla she and her husband worked so long, and valiantly, to bring into this world. And — if you don't already know Louise's story — her husband's moving words about her last days, along with her stepdaughter's poetic tribute, show that its theme was the only one that matters, and that's L-O-V-E love.

Dear Lisa, first time in your post and when I read this, it filled me with so much sorrow for Louise's grieving family. May she rest in peace. Sometimes we meet wonderful friends in blogsphere even though we may not have had the opportunity to meet them personally, we get to know them and love them and even though we may not have had the opportunity to put a face to a name, the feeling of bonding is tangible and real. I feel sorry too that you have lost a good blogger fren in Louise but be comforted that our Lord Loves her more and she is no longer suffering. Do visit my blog and let's make the world a better place by making and keeping new friends. God bless.

Lisa, the loss of Louise just broke my heart.

Thanks for stopping by recently - been awhile, for both of us.

I hope all is well with you,
