My Beloved AC is gone...

My beloved AC is gone. He had a massive stroke and bleed-out of the brain due to the Leukemia. I leave for home today and the funeral is planned for Saturday.

I meant it when I said we need to hurry up and create art, we don't have much time. My AC was only 56 years old.

I hope that friends will donate, if so inclined, to the Leukemia Society at the website mentioned below where my nephew, Scott, is running in a marathon to raise money in AC's name, it would mean the world to me. We are working even harder now to get a cure.

Thank you for your prayers during these last 3 months, there were times when I could feel them at just the right time.

Go hug your loved ones for me. Kiss them and tell them you love them, then go create art!

Lisa, Lisa, my heart breaks for you. Yes, time is short; I've learned that from my own health issues. I wish I could wrap my arms around you and hug you and hold you. You're always an anchor for others; I hope you have some anchors with you now. And angels. Love, love, love. I will go donate. Wish I could do more....

Lisa- We send our thoughts out to your family. We lost our dad three years ago to colon cancer and our grandmother a few years before that to myloid lukemia. It is such a difficult thing to go through and we certainly sympathize with your struggle over the past months and the sorrow you are feeling now. Love and hugs, Heather (Kosmopooch)

Lisa - my deepest sympathy for your loss. AC left too soon, but he is no longer suffering I hope you can take comfort in the many great memories you have of him while he was in your life and know that he was blessed to have you as well.

Take care of yourself and thanks for the reminder to never take what we have for granted.

See you soon.

I have been looking over your blog and your wonderful works of art.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Husband.

This hits close to home for me (Hubby had childhood leukemia and now suffers from heart disease) and I thank you for the inspiration you have given me through your art.
