Hello Sweet D!
I have missed you!
Thank you for your prayers and support for Mr D! He is home and doing well...with the exception of boredom!
We see his doctor on Monday. Hopefully, he can return to work before long.
It's amazing that we have been friends since well before the sudden passing of your dear brother, Charlie.
How special and beautiful is that photo taken at your daughter's wedding! Thanks for sharing it!

Happy Birthday to your dear brother, Diana. I know you miss him so much. And Happy Birthday to your best friend! Is that you on the right? OK, I still think you look like a young Farrah Faucett.

Have a fun weekend, Diana. Me and Jess are going shopping today, and I hope I find some goodies.

love you, ~Sheri

Happy Birthday to your brother, he is in heaven with my brother Mike. Gone too soon but living in our hearts and visiting in dreams. I purchased your friends book and look forward to reading it. A big birthday wish goes out to your friend Sandy, I often ask where would we be without our friends. Probably hanging at animal shelters adopting zillions of pets! Oh wait ... I am crazy cat lady with only two!

It's hard to believe your dear brother has been gone for two years, Diana. I hope his birthday wasn't too sad for you. You were blessed to have such a close relationship, and I think he must be looking out for you now in heaven. Great pic of you and your daughter and friend!!

I know you miss your brother. (I lost my mom about the same time. It's been very hard since January, just remembering her last months.) It's good you have such wonderful memories. I do know they help. Hugs from VA to you.

Happy Birthday to your brother, a special post.

I love the photo of the shoes. :-)) We did one with our family this Autumn in the leaves.

Congrats to Kay! Also, I know you miss Charlie! The angles are blessed for sure! Love the wedding photo- you had beautiful curls then too! You just don't age, my friend! This is lovely photo! Have a wonderful Sunday! Hope your cough is better! I just talked to my contractor and he said, he was "sick, sick, sick!" This stuff likes to hang on!

Gypsy Heart said...

Sweet birthday wishes to your brother! I know intellectually that those in Heaven are so blessed and happy ~ it's just so hard to deal here on earth. At least we know we'll see them again! Great photo ~ 3 beauties.

Oh, I understand those anniversaries of the heart when the day of someone we love happens along and we feel we'd love to be celebrating instead of missing them. Your brother has the kindest eyes visible to even me, a stranger. He has a lovely sister and I imagine parents, too. Gone too young is what I say whenever anyone dies. Even the very aged are too young in a way.

Love the young pic of you. Beautiful always.

You are SO good at posting. So is Tessa and I am so terrible. I guess I tend to ...drift.
Happy Birthday to your dear brother. It's so terribly hard to lose a family member or a dear friend. Even one you have never met in person.
Big are a sweetheart. LOVE that hair of yours!!

HEY I am so tickled to have won this book!
I had to work a very long day yesterday, so I am just now seeing this. So nice to wake up to this news this morning, you have made my day.
I am remembering that you lost your handsome brother and that the anniversary of his birth is in February. xx
I love that photo of you and Sandy and your daughter, all gorgeous women! Happy Birthday, Sandy! Lucky you to have Diana in your life, I am glad to have her in my blogging world!
Thanks again, Diana. You see, living in HOPE really works. xx
