My darling sister.....

This is the most heartbreaking post I have ever blogged and it is a tribute to my sister Karen http://serendipitydragonfly.blogspot.co.uk, who passed away on Monday.
Cancer is a terrible disease and Karen fought it successfully twice, but this last one was horrendous! Karen suffered such pain but you would never have known as she carried on as normally as possible.
For those of you that followed her blog you will know how creative she was. She was skilled in card making, embroidery, felting, mixed media and was a fabulous cook! In fact everything she turned her hand to was successful.


This was the last photo taken of Karen as she lunched with a friend a couple of months ago.

A much loved sister and aunt who will be sorely missed, now pain free and at peace.

I love that photo, Val, although it did make me cry. Thank you so much for posting it here and on FB. This was a beautiful tribute to your very strong and very talented sister. Even though she is free of pain, I know it's unimaginably hard for you and Tony and the rest of the family and I'm so very sorry. Love, Darnell

I am deeply upset to hear the Passing of Karen... We were Blogging friends... Her cards were amazing... She had a fabulous sense of humour... Always saying send us some of your sunshine... Etc... Her comments always made me smile...
At least now she is free of pain... So sad ...
Sending you big Hugs...
Take Care
