I waited until I got home to see what the theme for the week was. I was a little preoccupied with a long drive to the funeral of a very close friend’s mother. Cheri was like a second mom to me. I have memories of smiles, laughs, jokes, dinners and just plain spending so many nights over. Cheri was adamant that today was supposed to be a celebration of her life and not a day to be sad but sadness is understandable, we witnessed the loss of such a jubilant soul. I would like to dedicate this week to some of Cheri’s flowers. They represent her warmth and thirst for life.
