for dearest char - too soon gone

she is gone too soon.

i knew her less well than others,
but we visited each other's blogs
we had conversations
and now she is gone.

i keep saying it seems impossible,
i keep telling everyone that.

i have few words today.
beth & christina have said it best.

dearest char.
rest in peace.



  1. Oh, I'm so sorry, Debi. I just spent some time on her blog; what a lovely sweet spirit, now flying free.
    Hugs to you & all that knew & loved her. <3

  2. Oh I know. So sudden...too soon...incredibly sad. xoxo

  3. there are so many tributes today for char and that's what is helping heal my heart today......


  4. Losing a dear friend even online is always such a shock. You have written a dear tribute and after all the tributes I have read today I wish I had known her. Beth mentioned her to me months ago and I visited a few times. I will remember her with cookies.

  5. Wonderful tributes to Char ... hope she somehow knew the way she was touching everyone's lives....

  6. so sad .. such a shocking loss ..love you friend
