One Year

Technorati Tags:

Sunday we'll be remembering Lona Halden on the first anniversary of her departure from our lives. Although she is gone she has left a unique legacy that trancends the bonds of flesh.

We created this video from the photos that Lona left behind for us. She left these photos so that we would remember her as she was in life. Vibrant. Brilliant. Beautiful.

Her time with us was too short but we never forget how blessed we are to have had her with us as long as we did. Although we miss her smile, her humor, the depth with which she effected the world, and people, around her, we still have these... the photos that capture her love of life, her joy, and the brilliant wit and humor that made us all love her so much.

Our love for her has not diminished with her passing.
If anything, it has grown greater as we begin to truly understand how she touched our lives. Our sorrow hasn't lessened, but we have grown from what Lona taught us during her time on earth-that love is all that matters, that friendship is the only true currency with value, and that every day should be cherished as if it were your last.

We love you Lona.
We ache with missing you.

Tricia: You are a sweet soul. I can share with you that the past three years alone I have lost three wonderful friends; one girl to MS, another to cancer and a dear champion of my career who was unemployed with the Adelphia bankruptcy who was broadsided on the way to the market for milk. My memories with each I savor. They were all young. I pray that you will find a path to grieve and then celebrate your dear friends life positively with strength. And knowing you, I am confident that you will. Love and (((HUGS))) to you dear friend.

I think about your loss every time I think of you and I'm deeply sorry. I can still feel ur pain. That was a very awful stretch of time yu went through. I passed through the other side of your state yesterday so you were on my mind. One of these days, my friend, I'm gonna link up with you. Those are two pretty girls, BYW.
