With great sadness I let you know that I have only recently found out that our friend SparkysMom, AKA Melody passed away in January. Many of you remember her from the hay day of ICHC, after that she was an enthusiastic member of an email group some of us started, to cheer each other’s little victories and provide support in our defeats.
Unfortunately, due to her increasingly bad health it has been some time since our friend was able to use the computer and, more lately, even participate in phone calls. We have continued to send cards and good thoughts and wishes but have had to rely on infrequent updates from Mel’s son as to her health. I am not sure why he did not let us know when Mel left us but I am sure the stress of his mom’s illness and passing was a huge factor.
I remember our sweet friend as a woman filled with love and fun and boundless good humor. She is sadly missed. I will close this post by including a link to a prayer Mel posted, entirely in lolspeak, back in 2010. Fair warning…have your shamwows handy.
Love to all from
