Condolences and another tag…

Feb 10, 2011

First I must give my heart felt con­do­lences to my Aunt and cousins. Yes­ter­day, my Uncle David passed away peace­ful­ly at home. Uncle David was a qui­et man yet when you talked with him he was so inter­est­ing as he could talk about all kinds of won­der­ful top­ics. Sad­ly, 10 years ago he was diag­nosed with Alzheimer’s dis­ease and not long after that Parkin­son’s dis­ease. Aunt Bren­da cared for him at home every sin­gle day from the time of his diag­no­sis. Even though it is a bless­ing Uncle David has passed on it is still so sad and he will be missed. Aunt Bren­da was a won­der­ful exam­ple of how fam­i­ly should care for fam­i­ly. We nev­er heard her speak of any frus­tra­tions which I am cer­tain there were many and we nev­er ever heard or saw in her actions that she wished she was doing some­thing else. She made sure Uncle David received the care he need­ed and Lord help any­one who got in her way and told her he did not qual­i­fy for some form of aide… lets just say Aunt Bren­da is known in the fam­i­ly for her slight­ly stub­born don’t take no for an answer kin­da ways.

So if you will keep Aunt Bren­da and her fam­i­ly in your thoughts and prayers I will kind­ly appre­ci­ate it. This pho­to was tak­en when they lived in Dover, NH on a vis­it to see them in 2001. We had just spent a long day run­ning around here and there and feast­ing on lob­ster rolls. Uncle David was diag­nosed with Alzheimer’s not too long after this vis­it and this is how I choose to remem­ber him.

In the 80’s, when their friend, Herb Wil­son, died unex­pect­ed­ly, his fam­i­ly and friends estab­lished a stu­dent schol­ar­ship fund. Herb and Uncle David were of a like mind when it came to the impor­tance and love of edu­ca­tion. Both were well edu­cat­ed life long learn­ers, and both served on the Green­land School Board in NH for a num­ber of years. Uncle David loved being on the selec­tion com­mit­tee and review­ing what young minds were think­ing and plan­ning as the years passed. He main­tained his devo­tion to the project for almost 30 years, then my cousin Bri­an, stepped in to take his place.

If you wish to hon­or a loved one in some way, it would be great if you would keep the H. A. Wil­son Schol­ar­ship Fund in mind. In this econ­o­my help­ing a young per­son achieve their dream of a col­lege edu­ca­tion is a won­der­ful way to hon­or a loved one. It tru­ly is a gift that keeps on giv­ing.

Now please don’t feel I am being insen­si­tive in post­ing about a tag but Aunt Bren­da and Uncle David are the type that you just keep on going  and don’t cry over me. So here goes… sur­prise, anoth­er tag I cre­at­ed for Ranger. Yes it does have UTEE and yes more Wendy Vec­chi stamps. How cute is her heart stamp… I love the shape and size so much… obvi­ous­ly, because I decid­ed to use them to cre­ate a 3D back­ground for the tag. Also her script flower stamp is super cute and has so many pos­si­bil­i­ties. I think it would look so cute stamped on linen… what do you think?
