RIP TED! PLEASE PRAY FOR SUSIE @ SHEJUNKS

Susie/SheJunks called me this morning

and asked me to share the news of

Ted's death. 

Here is a picture of them 

as they were facing things head-on


I was lucky enough to meet Susie in person.

She lived a few miles away from my daughter, Mimi,

when Mimi lived in Indiana.

Susie is just as sweet in person 

as she seems on her blog.

The next time I saw her was in a hospital room

where Ted was being treated for cancer.

My husband, 

having finished his own cancer treatment,

met with Ted and Susie, too, 

and we shared life stories.

As a blogger we share happy, fun things but 

we also share in the hurts and sorrows 

of our fellow bloggers.

Please pray for Susie and her family

as they deal with the loss of 

TEDDY BEAR.

He was a wonderful man and will be dearly missed.

As always, if you are not a pray-er, please

send good wishes and healing thoughts

Susie's way.

She will be back to blogging when she feels she can.

Love to all of you from Susie AND me!

I am so sorry for Susie's pain. There have been so many bloggers this year who have had great losses and most have not returned. Grief comes in waves and it is the most difficult thing in life that we must bear. I pray for strength for Susie.

This is such sad news Diana especially after how hard Ted fought to win the battle with his cancer. Susie will need love and prayers in the coming days and I will certainly pray for her and her family. I had the pleasure of meeting Susie too when I went to a craft show at Horton's a few years back. She is as sweet as she comes across on her blog. Just a very wonderful and loving blogger. So sad to hear this news. xoxo Kris

Hello Diana,
I have been praying for Susie and family. I am so sorry to hear this.
Susie is a sweet blogging friend. She was able to read our Christmas letter to Ted. She shared with me how he laughed about my husband wanting his eggs for breakfast.. so we got chickens during the lock down.

Lots of love,
Carla
