    Thanks so much for another great party!!
    So sorry to hear about your friend – may only good memories surround his family…………….

  2. Catherine says:

    You’re always so generous to feature my projects–big hugs and Thanks!
    I was glad to see your post and to hear how things were going with your friend. When my uncle died a few years ago, as sad as it was–we laughed away sharing all kinds of “Uncle Fred-stories,” which made the day more of a celebration too. I miss him still, but think of him all the time!
    Btw—HE is the Freddy of Freddy & Petunia!

  7. I love how you celebrated your friend’s life in this post. I hope the celebration continues.

    On another note (oh how CRAZY! I just glanced up at Claire’s comment and saw nearly the same words), Claire and I are friends and ex-coworkers in real life. We used to work together at our church. Thanks for featuring us, especially together!
