l ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What claim to fame burned so brightly for so short a while until life refused to live you any longer ? Melting in puddles of waxed memory flicker 'cross a dim-lit room. Snuffed wick of recall lingering fragrances of your burning still waft to reach my senses of aching with the need of wanting more of you Reaching the crevices of this sister's heart reminding me of your eternal flame that lit my life In loving memory of my sister, Shari Cowart Ricker March 8, 1944 - October 7, 1999
Marge- This is so beautiful. I can feel your love for your sister in this. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through a difficult time with the memories of your sister and mother. God bless you, my friend.
love and hugs, -vicky

There are places inside our souls - that have never been touched. There are places inside our hearts - that need to be loved this much. ~jm~

too often - I bypass posting replies - because I can't think of adequate words - I'm profoundly moved - but can't think of words to say. - This is such an occasion. - I'll simply say you have my love and prayers - and hope you understand.
Oh sweet Marge...sending you dozens of Angel winged hugs and Butterfly kisses...Your heart is beautiful and shines brightly here with the love for your sister. I'm so sorry for your losses...I know this time must be very difficult for you and hope that you can find comfort in sharing your memories with us and allowing us to give to you what you give to so many of us....unconditional love and support of friends. Love you~
