It’s the hubster – with very sad news. Early this morning the Knitting Ref was finally overtaken in her 4 and a half year battle with ovarian cancer and has passed on to her next adventure in the journey of life. She is now at peace….
The One with whom I was to spend the rest of my life with - is gone and I am devastated. I have spent the day trying to just get thru the day! The experiences the Knitting Ref and I have had over the last 9 years I would not trade for anything. The experience of caring for your spouse who is terminally ill is also something I will cherish forever. Today, I have lost so much and gained so much – thanks to these experiences and all of you who have become my friend through the Knitting Ref.
I have posted below the lyrics to one of my favorite songs, Perhaps Love,
by John Denver as they are so poignant and speak of how I will remember our love so well.
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home
Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
and don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you thru
O love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
Some say they don’t know
Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
A thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
YOU, through your communications and interactions with the Knitting Ref have become friends of the Kitting Ref. I would love to meet as many of you as I am able, as so many times she has shared things you have posted on your own sites or have made comments on this site. If any of you in the Inland Empire of California are interested, please e-mail me directly at email@example.com
and I will share info concerning the service we will be having for the Knitting Ref on April the 1st.
Bless You and Thank You for all your prayers, concern, caring, and love you have expressed for the Knitting Ref.
